Prieur du Plessis in the spotlight

 EmailPrint This Post Print This Post

I have just been interviewed by a South African financial magazine, FinWeek. The result is published below and tells you a bit more about the person behind the Investment Postcards blog.



Veteran investment professional – and chairman of the Plexus group of companies – Prieur du Plessis could be considered a workaholic. He’s probably not, making time for other activities. But that’s the impression you get. For example, he has no problem agreeing to a 7am interview. “I’m an early riser. It’s already late in the day for me,” he quips as he shrugs off the apology for the early morning call.

Du Plessis is well known in the industry through prolific writing on investment matters and more recently his international investment blog: Investment Postcards from Cape Town. He also pioneered a number of unit trust performance rankings.

But the latest development in his extensive career is being appointed Honorary Consul of Slovenia for South Africa. Diplomacy seems far removed from running what’s essentially a specialist investment group, but Du Plessis says it’s not that different from what he does at Plexus: finding and making strategic partnerships overseas.

    Congratulations!! What is an “honorary Consul”?

  • Sheldon: It is a person representing a foreign country (in this case Slovenia) as a diplomat in a host country (in this case South Africa). Full-time diplomats heading up a diplomatic mission are usually either Ambassadors or Consuls. However, in a situation where it is a part-time function (done in conjunction with the incumbent’s normal job), the title becomes “Honorary Consul”.
