The interview

Crosoer begins the interview by describing how “investable” South Africa is, given its current economic condition and systemic challenges.

He then touches on the potential return South Africa offers investors who are willing to face these ostensible risks.

Crosoer continues by expanding on how South Africa’s position impacts the offshore allocations of investors, compared to their local investments.

He concludes the interview by explaining how being a mutual organisation like PPS Investments can have a broader impact on individual investors beyond just ROI.
