The global spread of the COVID-19 virus has been rapid and unprecedented. The effect of the ensuing pandemic has led to devastating outcomes, with the global economy projected to decline by 5.2% in 2020.

Having said that, the recovery in 2021, forecasted by the IMF, will be gradual.

On the local front, the yield on the once-cherished treasury bills has dropped as low as 3.50%, causing investors to act in a riskier manner. As they hunt for higher yield, they may be lured by unregulated investment companies who promise enormous and unreasonable returns on investments.

Can investors still earn returns during this economic decline?


This is where Zedcrest Investment Managers (ZIMVEST) come in.
