Episode 215 | Alex Simeonides | Capital Legacy Wills And Trusts
In this episode, I chat with Alex about how he built Capital Legacy. We also talk about why Wills are so important.
Testament to their mandate of making it easier to get your Will in place is the 380,000 clients they have assisted over the last 10 years. This number grows monthly with, on average, 11,000 new clients placing their trust in Capital Legacy to ensure their Legacies are protected too.
Passing away without a Will is problematic in quite a number of ways. Shortly put, though, it means that the deceased dies intestate and his/hers last wishes will most probably not be adhered to.
Capital Legacy draws up Wills at no cost to their clients, puts plans in place to cover legal fees and takes care of deceased estates. Because of the company’s focus on wills and its specialised processes, it finalises estates on average much quicker than industry standards.
Word of mouth regarding Capital Legacy has been a big part of the thousands of enquiries the company gets every month and is a testament to their focus on good old-fashioned client service.
Episode 214 | Mills Soko | South Africa and the World
In this episode, Mills and I have a frank and open chat about South Africa and where we are heading or where we could be heading.
At the core of the dismal state of the current world order is the failure of global governance … the seismic global economic power shift – from industrialised to emerging economies … is taking place within the context of a glaring leadership vacuum.’ – Mills Soko.
Over the past 20 years, the global political economy has experienced its most profound shifts since the industrial revolution. In South Africa and the World, Mills Soko reflects on some of the salient issues that have pervaded public discourse during this time, analysing them within the context of the contemporary South African political economy and the country’s position in the world.
Arranged thematically, the essays were all written during a defining period in recent history, a period that has witnessed, among others, the accession of China to the WTO, the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the US, the invention of the iPad, the birth of Facebook, the 2008/9 global financial crisis, Brexit and the global coronavirus pandemic which began at the end of 2019.
The turbulent multipolar world demands visionary political and economic leadership, supported by institutions well attuned to contemporary conditions. Such leadership is in short supply. Nor is the existing institutional architecture sufficiently equipped to deal with a complex array of economic, social, environmental, technological and demographic challenges.
Mills Soko highlights what has not worked in politics, leadership, foreign policy, the economy, the African development trajectory, corporate ethics, international trade, global governance, and the thread which underlies all these issues – the importance of strong, decisive and accountable leadership. He counters his criticism with what has worked and offers views on how some of the problems that have constrained progress in South Africa and the world can be solved.
A central message emerges from his writings: leadership and governance matter, whether in the national or international context. It is a message that permeates all the chapters in the book. And it goes to the heart of what South Africa has gone through over the past two decades and where it is today.
