Travis Robson used to work for Charles Savage. Now the two men are at the helms of IG South Africa and EasyEquities respectively.

S02E04: Royal Air Force pilot turned trader. How Siam Kidd trades Forex

I was privileged to speak alongside Siam Kidd on stage at a trading symposium in Johannesburg in 2017. We’ve since kept in touch. Siam qualifies as a millennial, but he shows a mature approach to trading that’s lacking in many of his millennial peer group. I enjoyed catching up with him and listening to his story of his years in the market, and his thoughts on the future.

S02E02: Hedge fund manager with a “Quant-amental” approach. A talk with JP Verster

JP Verster is the most eloquent market commentator I’ve ever encountered in the South African market space. A huge consumer of books and financial market information – he is a wealth of knowledge on more than just markets. He gained much airtime for being short in African Bank and riding the stock all the way to zero whilst at 36ONE Asset Management. JP now heads up Protea Capital management. He talks to me about his years in the market and his thoughts for the future.

S02E01: An introduction to Season 2 and a talk with Fraser Perring about short selling

Fraser Perring and Viceroy Research weren’t well known in South Africa until they gained credit for identifying the accounting scandal at Steinhoff in 2017. The firm are short sellers, meaning that they seek to take advantage of falling share prices. They made big money short selling Steinhoff and a little while later published a scathing report on the way Capitec accounts for bad debts, sending that company’s shares lower by 35% in early 2018. Most recently, Viceroy has been short in the shares of Wirecard, the German payment processing business that recently filed for bankruptcy and saw it’s CEO arrested on fraud charges. Fraser Perring’s approach to the market is vastly different from others interviewed in this series. In his own words, he says that what he does is “insane”. Indeed, but also very profitable.
