I’m proud to be South African born and raised, and I’ve been lucky enough to have been exposed to the industry from a young age as both my parents work in financial services. I’ve spent my entire life in the field which has given me an in-depth understanding of the complexities of financial planning.
Now, I am a qualified financial planner. I began my career in 2009 in the South African market servicing both group and personal clients. I moved to expat and personal business in 2010 being one of the first in the industry to develop pan-African group solutions for MNCs, specifically within the oil and gas and security industries.
I’ve had a range of roles within the industry, from pension fund administration and consulting to banking to life insurer. I’m particularly passionate about employee benefits and possess an excellent understanding of the needs of international employers as well as the benefits expectations of expat employees. This allows me to tailor bespoke financial solutions that best match the requirements for both parties as well as helping expats find solutions for their personal finances.
Outside the office, one of my biggest passions is motor racing. I also have a yen for motorcycle riding (particularly off-road adventuring) and my dream is to ride through Southeast Asia on a dual-sport 250 Enduro bike! I am also convinced that biltong is life – I make my own biltong here in Ho Chi Minh City.
