Alec Hogg



Educated at Merchiston Prep, Newcastle High and Natal University, Alec Hogg (53) is a media entrepreneur who founded Moneyweb Holdings in 1997. The company’s shares are listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and the business is today worth over R70m.
Alec Hogg travels widely including annual trips to the World Economic Forum in Davos - Switzerland and Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway AGM in Omaha in the US.
The compulsive reader and student of history was re-appointed as the CEO of Moneyweb Holdings in April of 2012, but he resigned six months later following a misalignment of values with the controlling shareholder, Caxton.
Since winning every financial journalism award available in South Africa, Hogg stopped entering competitions years ago. He remains the youngest ever overall winner (at age 22) of the Sanlam Financial Reporter of the Year award, in 1983.

Consciously protecting his freedom and independence, his time is invested in thinking and reading; researching and writing for alechogg.com; presenting an occasional keynote address; and running a portfolio of JSE-listed shares.
