Subscriber Testimonials


"I started subscribing just over a year ago. I know because I just renewed my subscription! As an expat I enjoy the mix of domestic South African news, the international link with WSJ, your daily email updates from Felicity, and the new weekly Friday fun email from Simon. You focus on the key news issues and cut out the incessant ‘chatter’ that seems to dominate media nowadays. Keep up the great work."
Sean Hayward
"I love the introduction Felicity writes ahead of the stories in BizNews Premium - a great synopsis of what’s happening globally and enough to allow me to make a mental note of stories of interest to read later in the day - either in my lunch break or late in the evening. Thanks for keeping me up to date!"
Samantha Sharkey, MBA
"Being in South Africa and thinking globally and having to act locally, it is very important for me to be able to tap into a global voice with local knowledge. BizNews fits the bill perfectly. I really look forward to my early morning fix from Alec and his team. Always relevant. Thank you!"
Ronnie van’t Hof

Common Questions


Q: Do we really get full access to the Wall Street Journal? What's the catch?

You absolutely do. No catch. We have acquired a subscription to the Wall Street Journal for every Biznews Premium subscriber. You will even be welcomed there by name, so can comment and download and use the App, just like any other subscriber to the world’s leading business title. We're honoured to partner with the blue ribband in financial journalism.

Q: What's your refund policy?

If you cancel within the 30 day free trial period, you pay nothing. Should you decide to cancel any time after that, you'll enjoy full access until the end of the current billing cycle.

Q: What are the benefits of the one year subscription?

Because of the volatility of their home currencies, many members prefer "locking in" their subscriptions for longer periods. Thus, the one-year subscription was born. A popular option, it removes the need to continuously recalculate exchange rates.

Q: How do the webinars work?

We've been hosting online webinars since 2015 as a monthly update for members who invested in the Biznews Global Share portfolio (return over 35%pa since inception). The concept has been expanded to include the weekly Rational Radio podcast which is now recorded during the weekly podcast. These webinars are for members only - we send you a link where you can register before every webinar.

Q: Who manages BizNews Premium?

Premium is spearheaded by Biznews editor in chief Alec Hogg and supported by the BizNews team of award winning journalists. It features a treasure trove of original content. You can learn more about the BizNews team on the About Us page.
