While at Web­ber, she de­vel­oped one of the first de­riv­a­tives law prac­tices in SA. The JSE was one of her clients, and she pro­vided ad­vice on its dereg­u­la­tion and amend­ments of its rules and l i stings re­quire­ments. In 2003, New­ton-King was named as one of the 100 Global Lead­ers for To­mor­row by the World Eco­nomic Fo­rum, and was named a Yale World Fel­low in 2006. don’t think it is ap­pro­pri­ate to be­lieve that com­peti­tors will never touch you. So we spend ev­ery mo­ment of ev­ery day tun­ing the dial – mak­ing sure that the prod­ucts we of­fer are what the clients want, that the ser­vice lev­els we of­fer to clients are the ones they ex­pect at a price that they think is valu­able. So that any­body that would try and com­pete with us will find it ex­tremely dif­fi­cult to do that.
