Capitec Bank Shares Earn South African Magnate Gerrie Fourie $5.5 Million

Gerrie Fourie, a South African banking executive, has seen a significant boost in the market value of his shareholding in Capitec Bank, owing to the lender’s recent share price gain on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).

Gerrie Fourie’s investment in Capitec Bank increased by R102.08 million ($5.48 million) in the last 17 days. This uptrend builds on his prior profits, which saw his investment increase by $8.6 million between January 4 and March 9.

Capitec Bank, founded 20 years ago by South African billionaire Michiel Le Roux and distinguished businessmen Jannie Mouton and Riaan Stassen, has risen to prominence as a leading retail bank, providing a wide range of services, including transactional banking and a variety of loan products such as term loans, credit facilities, and credit cards.

Gerrie Fourie, Capitec Bank’s CEO, owns a 0.89 percent ownership in the leading retail bank, which is equivalent to 1,027,673 ordinary shares. As a result, he is one of the country’s wealthiest bankers and one of its most successful investors.

The recent increase in Capitec Bank’s share price has increased the market value of Fourie’s interest by R102.08 million ($5.48 million), from R2.11 billion ($113.35 million) on March 19 to R2.21 billion ($118.83 million) as of the time of writing.
