Abstract

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.
