The Money Show's Bruce Whitfield interviews Sandile Shabalala (CEO, TymeDigital) and Johan van der Merwe (co-CEO, ARC).

Billionaire Patrice Motsepe’s African Rainbow Capital (ARC) will soon own 100% of TymeDigital, forming South Africa’s first black-owned commercial bank.

VBS Mutual Bank, although black-owned, is not a commercial bank.

TymeDigital will aim to provide affordable and accessible banking services through partners of which Pick n Pay and its Boxer stores are the largest.

The bank will aggressively target unbanked and underserved South Africans as well as small and medium-sized businesses.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed TymeDigital CEO Sandile Shabalala and Johan van der Merwe, co-CEO of ARC.

Listen to the interviews in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).

It’s a great opportunity for us… This is the first one [black-owned bank]… Patrice wants a very particular type of bank where he can bring in the unbanked and underserviced…

Johan van der Merwe, African Rainbow Capital

We talk a lot about the underserved sector… We want to broaden the reach of financial services… it is about providing excellent service… that people are willing to pay for… it’s about providing value for money…

Sandile Shabalala, TymeDigital

We’re aiming to open the bank towards the latter part of this year… we’re very close.

Sandile Shabalala, TymeDigital
