Uplifting Nicky Oppenheimer Quotes, Africa’s Third Richest Man.

I’ve compiled some of the most powerful Nicky Oppenheimer quotes.

Nicholas Oppenheimer was born On June 8, 1945. He is a billionaire tycoon from South Africa. He was previously the chairman of De Beers and its subsidiary, the Diamond Trading Company, as well as the former vice chairman of Anglo American. He is Africa’s third richest man.

He was the third generation of his family to lead DeBeers, which he privatized in 2001.

Until 2012, the Oppenheimer family held a leading position in the global diamond trade.

In 2012, Nicky Oppenheimer, heir to the DeBeers diamond empire, sold his 40% stake in the company to mining conglomerate Anglo American for $5.1 billion in cash.

In 2014, Oppenheimer founded Fireblade Aviation, a chartered flight company based in Johannesburg.

Across South Africa, Botswana, and Zimbabwe, he owns at least 720 square miles of conservation land.

15 Nicky Oppenheimer Quotes

  1. “Diamonds are intrinsically worthless, except for the deep psychological need they fill.”

2. “I don’t think Africa gets as much credit as it should have on the world stage. People tend to think of us as coming from The Dark Continent, where nothing good goes on. That’s not true. A huge amount of, as I say, entrepreneurship goes on.”

3. “It is only through developing and maximizing all its natural resources that a sustainable future for Africa and its people can be secured.”

4. “I am one of the affluent rich living the good life. But I like to think that I am doing my bit to resolve the problems of Africa and am certainly committed to Africa in the long run.”

5. “Diamonds are a key component in the campaign to make poverty history.”

6. “We all need to become more customer-focused and recognize the power of marketing to sell more diamonds.”

7. “I am an African. I live there and my children live there, and as far as I understand, they intend to go on living there.”

8. “I’m a great believer that, if you know how to operate in Africa, there are unbelievable opportunities.”

9. “Businesses need certainty, to see clearly the rules of engagement for investing in South Africa.”

Nicky Oppenheimer quotes

10. “You can get a diamond which is worth 10 cents; you can get a diamond of exactly the same size, which is worth a hundred dollars.”

11. “America is a country of entrepreneurship and great business leaders.”

12. “Any father likes his son to take over from him if possible.”

13. “May I suggest that people in many African countries could be suffering from donation fatigue?”

14. “One likes at the point of production to realize the maximum value, and diamond producers are no different.”

15. “Because I am an African I reserve the right to say that Africa does not exist simply to make people in this country the UK, or anywhere else in the developed world, feel good about themselves.”

My favorite Nicky Oppenheimer quotes are, “We all need to become more customer-focused and recognize the power of marketing to sell more diamonds.” and “Businesses need certainty, to see clearly the rules of engagement for investing in South Africa.”
