Dan Gertler's dealings with Ivan Glasenberg and Glencore
Born in SA and a Wits graduate, Ivan Glasenberg has or had citizenship of South Africa and Australia, before acquiring Swiss citizenship in 2011.
He had also once contemplated obtaining Israeli citizenship in order to be able to compete – in speed walking – in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, but it was too late to qualify.
In that year he joined the London-listed multinational commodity trading and mining company Marc Rich & Co. AG. founded by soon to be notorious Swiss billionaire Marc Rich.
