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.
