Background to Keith
Increasingly regarded as an expert in the small caps sector and regularly referenced in the media – both online and offline – Keith’s footprint in this field is certainly growing.
As a passionate and active investor of private funds in small caps for many years, Keith spotted a gap in the market for quality fundamental research available on small caps and founded SmallCaps.co.za in 2006. SmallCaps.co.za was received well and covered the fast growing and dynamic small cap sector on the JSE. His contribution here opened opportunities such as landing a ‘Small Caps’ section on MoneyWeb.co.za.
Keith’s love affair with finance and investments started at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University where he completed his graduate and post-graduate degrees in Accounting and Economics. Keith went on to complete his articles with PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc. and qualify as a Chartered Accountant.
Keith joined Standard Bank in 2010 where he contributed as a small cap equity analyst for a year. He is currently part of the Thebe Stockbroking team where he is contributing in the same capacity. Thebe Stockbroking clients regularly receive his small cap research.
Keith releases a weekly podcast called "Irrational Markets" on Maudestreet.com. In it he talks on topics like behavioral finance, fringe economics and all the (apparently) lovely inefficiencies we see in the market.
He also makes regular guest appearances on Maude Street, CNBC Africa and JustOneLap, amongst others, and run the public-facing Blue Gem Research as a prepaid research service to the market.
