PSG Chair Jannie Mouton opens up (kind of) about Steinhoff

For sure it’s a shock to me! I want to be on holiday, I can’t even relax, I sit here in stress, because Bruce Whitfield is going to phone me, and you’re a powerful man.

In 2012 Steinhoff acquired 20% of wealth manager PSG.

Steinhoff, through Christo Wiese, swapped some of its shares for those of PSG.

PSG Chairperson Jannie Mouton was, reportedly, furious when the deal went through.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Mouton.

Mouton spoke about Steinhoff and how he and his foundation sold all their Steinhoff shares 18 months ago, after he resigned from the board last year.

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for more quotes from it).

We haven’t spoken since all this bad news happened.

Jannie Mouton

I have unbelievable trust in my colleagues at PSG.

Jannie Mouton

PSG is a good company… I have high opinions of the people’s integrity…
