The big picture here is to do a South African version of the hugely popular and insightful book - Market Wizards in which Jack D Schwager did a series of interviews with traders and investors and published those interviews verbatim.
The ideal plan is to publish the book late this year or early next with 10-12 interviews in total.
The first interview was with Keith McLachlan, I have the transcript and will be sending out this weekend. It is 21 pages and if anybody else is keen to read and comment please drop an email at [email protected] with the subject "transcript" and I will send you a copy .. All I ask is for you to send me any feedback you have on the interview
Who are South africa's Paul Tudor jones,Alan Howards,Paulsons etc.I cant think of anybody off hand except maybe more Value type investors in RMBH trio,Jannie Mouton ,Johann Rupert,Christo Wiese(yes I went to Stellies but no bias in list)brian Joffe as they all certainly know how to trade a good deal
Technically CEOs aren't investors, they're allocaters of capital that often become operationally involved with the businesses they buy, integrate and add-value to. When was the last time any minority investor/trader on the JSE got "operationally involved" with any company whose couple shares they hold? Apples versus oranges. Totally different.
Ok but my question is who are South africas best traders and who do we think is the best? like example a Paul Tudor Jones/George Soros of SA. I dont know of any off hand why I brought up the CEO's.Get my point?
