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.
