[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.

Discovery has something called Discovery card that was actually operated by FNB, that card is now moving into the Discovery Bank. So Discovery Vitality through a transaction selling off its interest in that card, made about a R500 million profit so a great deal of this massive profit was from that once off piece of accounting.

What we saw was a broad set of accounts specific to vitality but it does not go into the detail of how exactly this profit was made.
