Previously know as Questions and Answers, The Investor deals with general investment questions put forward by its readers and offers other useful advice. It is available free of charge by email each week by inputting you email address on our home page. Back-issues from January 2012 and onward can be found here in PDF form. From before January 2012 to 2009, you will have to send an email to support@rcis.co.za requesting a specific copy. Before that they were not available as PDF.

While Richard Cluver makes every effort to reply in this column to all email queries, it is not always possible to immediately reply to every one, particularly to those that might not be of general interest to all readers or which might require a long and complicated response.
