Roome, William (2005) South African equities as inflation hedges: a note. In: 10th AIBF Banking and Finance Conference, 29-30 Sept 2005, Melbourne, Australia.
Equities have traditionally been said are to offer a hedge against inflation. During the latter years of the twentieth century, South Africa provided a good test case for establishing the veracity of this claim, as a high rate of inflation was the norm. Accordingly, this note examines the empirical evidence, with most studies finding South African equities to have served as a good hedge against inflation over the long term.
