CBS was built on integrity, teamwork, innovation, excellence and social responsibility. Its objective was to provide superior capital and earnings growth through an innovative and diverse property investment strategy which proved to be enormously successful. CBS grew to a market capitalization of approximately R2.3 billion before a successful offer was made for the business in 2007 that realized a total return of over 100% to shareholders who held or acquired shares on listing.
Capitalgro does not pay its Executive Directors any fees, salaries, commissions or benefits. Its Executive Directors are remunerated by the Asset Manager.
