Daily Investor grows to over 1 million South African readers

Daily Investor has continued its rapid growth, and in March reached a record 1.2 million monthly readers and 3.5 million page views.

Daily Investor is South Africa’s premier finance, business, and investment publication for retail and institutional investors, C-level executives, business owners, and finance professionals.

Launched in August 2022, it quickly earned a huge following among South African investors and high-income earners – and is now a leading voice in the market.

Daily Investor’s email newsletter has grown in popularity, too, and is now sent to 100,000 subscribers every day. These subscribers include top executives, equity analysts, and portfolio managers.

On the back of its rapid readership growth, Daily Investor launched a new online talk show in February titled Smart Money with Alishia Seckam.

The first season has featured many top business leaders, including Bank Zero chair Michael Jordaan, Discovery CEO Adrian Gore, ARC co-CEO Johan van Zyl, and Vodacom CEO Shameel Joosub.

Other guests have included Lift co-founder Gidon Novick, A2X CEO Kevin Brady, Vestact CEO Paul Theron, and AlexForbes CEO Dawie de Villiers.

Since its launch, Smart Money with Alishia Seckam has notched up over 250,000 views across YouTube, Facebook, and the show’s official website.
