IN­TER­NA­TION­ALLY wealthy fam­ily

Financial Mail - Investors Monthly - - Cover Story -

Pauline in­her­ited a for­tune from her fa­ther who had built a highly suc­cess­ful con­struc­tion busi­ness.

She man­ages an in­vest­ment hold­ing com­pany that em­ploys 10 peo­ple in Lon­don and has a port­fo­lio of prop­er­ties, in­ter­ests in un­listed com­pa­nies (usu­ally owned by friends or fam­ily mem­bers) and other as­sets.

The port­fo­lio is cur­rently worth R800m. She has as­sets spread around the world, in­clud­ing a house in the south of France worth €5m, a yacht worth €1m, a town­house in Lon­don worth £2m, a house in Sand­ton worth R20m and a wine es­tate in Stel­len­bosch worth R15m.

She has cash and shares worth R60m held with her bro­ker in Sand­ton, as well as trusts in SA and in Jer­sey that hold R100m in as­sets.

Pauline is twice di­vorced and is now en­gaged to Thabo, who runs his own en­gi­neer­ing com­pany but is nowhere near as fi­nan­cially suc­cess­ful as she is. She has three grown chil­dren and five grand­chil­dren liv­ing around the world. She is ea­ger to ac­quire a pri­vate jet, a long-held dream, to use for her fre­quent trips be­tween Lon­don and Jo­han­nes­burg. She also has a large col­lec­tion of art, some in­her­ited and oth­ers she ac­quired over the years.

She wants an ad­viser to help her in re­fo­cus­ing her some­what hap­haz­ard af­fairs with a view to­wards her new mar­riage — she wants to pro­tect her wealth for her chil­dren and grand­chil­dren — and plans for ac­quir­ing the jet.
