    This is a step in the right direction and will shake up the money lenders who earn close to 8.5 % on your investment and give you 4.5% yet the stats provided amaze me as would have thought that people who save, think ahead !! who would take a TFSA with a banking institution paying interest @4.5 % when the Many excellent private funds ( which prior to TFSA you could only invest with if you had R500K- 1 Million to start with ) now are available to the smaller saver Via their TFSA which will allow the investor to save the same as if with a bank but with definite reward of at least 2 X bank investment rate would give and possibly even more if you choose wisely. The Real advantage to the TFSA in my opinion -is that any Dividend/ interest earned-growth( within the annual investment / life time accumulation allowed by SARS ) in any form is not taxable ( hence one has to invest where the highest return can be obtained and that is certainly NOT a bank !! ) further for pensioners particularly- this investment does not reduce the annual taxable interest deduction on other investments !!! so you have two bites at the cherry before you give it away professional writing
