In this face-to-face video interview, the JSE CEO shares not only her personal journey towards leadership of this august institution at the centre of South African business – but also offers a close-up look at the JSE’s internal workings.
Among other topics, Newton-King discusses somewhat surprising statistics about share ownership on the JSE in relation to foreign investors, black and white ownership, and what they mean, in her view. She also shares some strong views on real transformation of the economy, women in business, the advantages of diversity in the workplace, as well as some interesting anecdotes about the JSE’s historical landmarks.
Her personal journey, which begins on a peach farm in the Cape, is punctuated with the invaluable lessons that she learnt throughout her impressive career, and now happily shares with us in this engaging and authentic interview.
