[LISTEN] How Discovery Vitality made R603m profit from unused member perks
Business Insider's reporting that Discovery Vitality’s profits increased by 13-times over to 603-million rand, because Vitality members failed to use their perks.
Business Insider Associate Editor Phillip De Wet explains how the major profit made this year was a strange once-off occurrence.
