Williams was not a director of BK One, but he was instrumental in developing and managing its various investments. These investments include equity stakes in:Avalloy, a producer of specialist alloys; Pure Ocean, a farmer of salt- and fresh-water fish; and TOR Construction. BK One had also lent R33.8m to cash management company Cash Connect.

Williams was a director of each of these companies, and Basileus Capital had played a key role in their early development. BK One has sourced all of its investments from Basileus Capital.

BK One is a joint initiative between Basileus Capital andKwanda Capital. Basileus Capital focuses on investments that advance government policies, including job creation and minerals beneficiation.

Williams founded JSE-listed Wesizwe. He served as director at the junior platinum company until his removal in March last year.
