Our team credentials
We are a diverse team of successful professionals with extensive experience, skills and thought-leadership in our respective, specialised fields in the financial services sector.
We are bound by our common vision of making the magic of financial freedom accessible to all.
This team has individuals that have led the transformation and growth of two large asset management businesses, the launch of the fastest growing short-term insurer and the establishment of the largest tied distribution in South Africa in the past decade, through the introduction of appropriate operating models.
The directors have championed the growth and development of talent, including black talent, in all the businesses they have previously run. There is an opportunity to develop target investments into black-owned and black run businesses and partner with them so that they become dominant in their sectors.
Introduction to the team
I have spent more than 25 years working in and leading insurance and asset management businesses in South Africa. I have been involved and have led the development of industry leading products, new business models and the turnaround of two large asset management businesses.
My second passion to making the magic of financial freedom accessible to all is running. I have run 7 Two Oceans Ultra Marathons and 7 Comrades Marathons.
I have 25 years’ experience in financial services spanning finance, operations, distribution and leading an emerging market insurance company as part of a listed group. I have led the development of the most productive salaried sales force in South Africa - from 800 advisers to a formidable channel of 4500 advisors.
My second passion is listening to jazz and cheering my daughter in her rowing regattas.
I am a seasoned actuary with 20 years’ experience in consulting, product development, portfolio management, regulation and reinsurance. Through my work experience I have gained a combination of actuarial skills and business knowledge and consulted to various Fintech start-ups and other successful entrepreneurial ventures in financial services in the South African market.
Whilst I have a passion for life, food, wine and anything that gets the adrenalin going, I pride myself on breaking the stereotypical mould – be that hardcore feminist, doing the odd triathlon or simply scooting around Cape Town.
I am a Chartered Accountant, and I completed my articles at Deloitte in 2018. I have worked in both South Africa and the USA. I later joined Deloitte Consulting in their strategy division, where I focused on operating model reconfigurations and turnaround strategy projects.
My passions lie in both road running and serving communities. My goal is to run an ultra-marathon at least once, this is a long way from the half marathons I currently do. I am a member of the Global Shapers community, a youth led initiative by the World Economic Forum that drives dialogue and action around the world’s most pressing issues. These conversations allow us to formulate solutions that will benefit marginalised communities.
