South African-born real estate mogul Barry Stuhler has experienced a substantial increase in the market value of his stake in Lighthouse Properties, riding on the sustained upswing in the share price of the Malta-based property firm on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).

Stuhler, known as one of the richest investors on the JSE, has seen his stake in the Malta-based property company surge by R240.05 million ($12.57 million) over the past three weeks as investors on the local bourse heightened their stakes in the Mauritius-based company.

This notable increase comes on the heels of a $6.9-million gain recorded between Oct. 20 and Nov. 20, when the market value of his stake in Lighthouse Properties increased from R863.50 million ($47.07 million) to R989.57 million ($53.95 million) cementing his position as one of South Africa’s most affluent individuals.
