Magic Markets Ep50: Competition Commission

Show Notes

After the controversy around Grand Parade’s efforts to sell Burger King South Africa to a private equity fund, the Competition Commission became even more topical for investors. South Africa is a somewhat unique environment, with public interest considerations creating the risk of unpleasant outcomes in deals.

Internationally, antitrust legislation and regulatory policy can make a significant difference to investment returns. Some Big Tech companies are more at risk than others.

To help make sense of it all, Duncan Lishman joined us to discuss the world of competition regulation. As a competition economist, Duncan is highly skilled and experienced in this area. 

Magic Markets is your invitation to join our conversations with experts on topics that affect the markets.
