We invest in a selection of listed funds on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.

Listed property funds are not direct property investments but an investment in shares which is subjected to the general sentiment towards the entire stock exchange.

Compared to direct property investment, listed property is more liquid and their portfolios offer greater diversification.

Gearing (using the bank's money) could be used far more aggressively with direct investment, but the other side of the coin is that your risk also increases with high levels of gearing.
