Barclays Stockbrokers offers South African opportunities

The standard trading rates range from £6.95 to £12.95.

It points to the iShares MSCI South Africa (SRSA) ETF, which tracks the index of the Rainbow Nation, or suggest investing in Xstrata, Diamond Corp or Anglo American, for their exposure to the region.

Another way to cash in on any opportunities in the region is via a fund with exposure to the region, and Barclays Stockbrokers singles out Fidelity's Emerging Europe Middle East and Africa, which has over 38 per cent investment exposure to South Africa.

"It is worth noting that the economic benefits of being the host country are a matter of some debate; while optimists see the event as a catalyst for further economic growth and prosperity, sceptics believe the wider economic impact is limited and will not influence the more fundamental issues the country faces," Barbara-Ann King, head of investments at Barclays Stockbrokers, said.
