What I love about this is firstly who runs  it , their value driven approach , and secondly the private capital approach it represents. What I don't like [ and to  be  fair I think managment have seen the light on this one  - is the getting involved with listed stuff as a minority share holder ]  So it irks me that they are hanging around in Conduit Capital. And it scares the life outa me that the latter are linking in their Constantia short term with Trustco (and guess what there is going to be a shareholding in Trustco's LSH or what ever the call it )- okay , the interest that RACP has in CC is very small - but given the price raise in CC there is only one thing I think makes perfect sense and that is sell , sell , sell Conduit. Because, for my own account,  I would rather swim in shark infested waters than get involved with Trustco...  
Hi, please advise how I can trf shares I bought onto my portfolio. It was bought on my name. They might be under other investment companies or just out there. Please advise. Many thanks.

I wonder whether its possible that the  Equity Research team worked for the Albanian Regime in a previous life - their President Hoxha would say every year when looking forward to the next year something along the following lines "Last Year was difficult but it will not be as difficult as the year to come"? (  To be fair this did happen  in a country where even using the words "hope" "future" "enjoyment" would probably give rise to a life sentence - with hard labour .)   But just looking at the prospects for food delivery - even a breakeven point for food delivery  - and the ebitda - ?? Man ....if those pockets don't stay deep....

You're certainly not the only one for sure.  The new format is a pain for me to navigate through - I much prefer the old condensed form.  In my view there is too much wasted space and having to scroll down (at least on my laptop screen) to see the share portfolio splits is simply a waste of time. I feel like I have to continually scroll up and down.  Reccon SFM actually reads and takes note of these comments?
What makes you say that?

Okay so some one help me - this name links into the founding of the asset maangement business - in 1991. So what? Is this the best thy could do- but what is in a name when it is the outcomes linked to the name that count , besides it has a  founder's ego trip ring to it? More importantly as an INL share holder a name change or no name change at all is  going to erase the  last 5 - or perhaps longer - results of the group. Fat, lazy  and grandmasters at  badly deployed capital - what,if anything , is this delink going to do for investors? Not a lot I fear - unless the cozy culture changes and becomes cognizant of and responsive to the only thing that counts - share holder and client SATISFACTION.???

Why would you favour this Fischer-Price interface over the older, more comprehensive one? Less information spread over a larger area makes it more difficult to access useable data. Too much white space. It's just like the way Standard Bank ruined the Online Banking interface.
Same issue as Allan Gray new Portal - lots of wasted space

As said.... what a disaster !!  Fortunately the old site will still be available....I wonder for how long  ??  
Please don't change. I have mastered the present website and am very happy with it. The OST seems very "bitty" complicated and all over the place.
Am I the only one is irritated in the extreme by the new log on format and opening of OST?
Please keep in mind that not everyone is computer literate such as the programmers Please stay with the old user friendly site, nothing wrong with it

I agree with most of the comments above , having experienced the changes to Internet banking over the last year or two I suspect that this may be a disaster. The current site works perfectly well , has all the information one needs right in front of you. A modern looking site does not neccessarily lead to a practical workface and this has been borne out on thh banking platforms -some users do still use PC's. I'm afraid you may end up chasing people away , but note that the old site will still be available ( makes me wonder - why bother with a new one )

The OST Beta site is a disaster - please DO NOT implement it! Do you expect clients to remember all their investments by Product Codes? Company names only appear if you mouse over the codes - a tedious exercise! Amounts of over R1million do not even fit into the blocks, and no-one at OST has even noticed this! There are many other shortcomings - too many to detail. All comments above are negative - has OST received ANY positive feedback? Why not publish a summary of the feedback received by OST, so that clients can be informed of the general perception, and indicate whether or not OST is going ahead with the site regardless?

    BlueDolphin   frequent contributor   ‎17-09-2019   08:49 AM OST Beta Is it just me that find OST Beta not very user friendly? White spaces and blank rows all over the screen, info scattered top and bottom left and right. To do a trade have to scroll up down look left right for confirm buttons, reviews. I really REALLY hope they will keep the old screens. Was/is compact , all info in one glance, etc.
