South African businessman Jannie Mouton, the founder of the PSG Group investment holding firm, has seen a significant boost in wealth over the last week, owing to the rising value of his stock in Capitec Bank, a leading South African retail bank.

The market value of Mouton’s investment in Capitec Bank has increased by R631.75 million ($33.82 million) in the last eight days due to the retail bank’s prolonged upswing on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.
