Does your company have South Africa’s sharpest financial brains? Our friends at Intellidex are giving you the opportunity to prove it, while raising money for charity!

In the run-up to the festive season, Intellidex is hosting an exciting new charity drive through a “virtual pub quiz” to test your financial general knowledge. So get your team together. Challenge your associates, colleagues and competitors to help rally resources in support of those who have been most severely affected by Covid-19.


There is an entry fee of R2,000 per team which will go into a pot to be donated to the charity chosen by the winning team. Any charity can be chosen by the team entering, provided it is a bona fide public benefit organisation that is registered as a non-profit organisation in South Africa. The donations will be made to the winning team’s charity in the names of the companies that entered (unless you expressly indicate otherwise). If required, section 18A certificates will be requested from the winning charity for each company that enters.

Intellidex will match the total amount raised through the quiz with a donation to the Seriti Institute, subject to a cap of R40 000.

Your team can have up to five players. Please choose a team name for your entry form. Companies are welcome to enter more than one team. All team members must be bona fide employees (or contract staff) of the company they represent. Entries must be in by midnight on 23 November.

The quiz will be done virtually and presented by our finquizmaster, Dr Stuart Theobald, over five knockout rounds.

  1. Multiple choice questions: Financial general knowledge
  2. Multiple choice questions: Global financial general knowledge
  3. Pictures
  4. Music
  5. General knowledge

Teams can assemble to compete or do so through virtual meeting rooms. Quiz questions will be developed by Intellidex and accepted answers on the night will be final.

The team with the best virtual background will win a mystery prize!

Once you have registered, Intellidex will share further details on where the registration fee can be paid. Your registration will be approved once proof of payment has been received.

“We look forward to having some festive fun in support of a good cause following a gruelling 2020!” says Stuart. “Hope to see you there.”
