It's alleged Trillian Capital knew Van Rooyen was to become finance minister before appointment last December, and had Gupta ties.

Non-executive chairman of Trillian Capital Tokyo Sexwale has announced investigators will look into claims that Gupta family has links to the company.

Two weeks ago the Sunday Times reported that Trillian Capital employees were told in advance that Cogta Minister Des Van Rooyen was going to become the finance minister before his appointment last December.

According to EWN reporter Clement Manyathela, Sexwale also said the investigation will also look at allegations that Van Rooyen promised contracts to the company.

Cape Town based Advocate Geoff Budlender will investigate all the claims.

Sexwale also said he has the support of Trillian Capital CEO Eric Wood.
