All interest, capital gains, and dividends you receive will be fully tax-free. You cannot invest more than R36 000 every tax year and R500 000 in total across all of your tax-free items throughout the course of your lifetime.

A unit trust gives the investor exposure to a variety of assets, all of which are chosen and managed by investment professional, so you don't have to make individual investment decisions.
