Funds belonging to government employees are vulnerable to risky investments.
The PIC (Public Investment Corporation) has little to prove, with – by its own reckoning – at least R1.6 trillion worth of assets under its management.

By definition, this means that, like Fort Knox, the PIC is vulnerable.
