Talking investment: TRG’s Devin Shutte interviewed by The Financial Mail

Always learning from his experiences, excited about investing in the future, and open to new opportunities and conversations... that’s our very own Head of Investments, Devin Shutte. A long-term value investor, he invests with a view to the future profit growth of companies. 

You can read his recent interview with the Financial Mail here (he was also on CNBC talking investment last year).

The highlights


1. If someone came to you tomorrow with R100m to invest in just one company, which would it be? 

Discovery. This is an SA company that is successfully expanding globally by licensing its unique Vitality model, which is its core customer engagement framework. On top of this, it offers its established suite of services, coupled with an imminent foray into banking, which should provide significant long-term tailwinds for the company. That said, the current valuation is looking stretched and I would wait for better value before buying.

2. If you found a lottery ticket that had won US$100m, what would you do with it? 

Settle the debt on my properties, travel the world for a year and start a nonprofit foundation with the rest.

3. Do you own bitcoin? 

Yes. I find cryptocurrencies an uncomfortable asset class, but I wanted to own some to be able to speak from experience.
