I have always had a very soft spot for animals. Probably because they can’t speak up for themselves and they tend to trust easily.
That could be why I enjoy what I do so much. I feel it relates closely with my love for animals and why I regularly help out at a local animal shelter. Our clients are just as trusting with their future plans and need the same patience and care to guide them to happiness – in this case, their financial happiness. And I can help our team to achieve that.
Coming from South Africa, it being such a multi-cultural kaleidoscope of people, I’ve learnt how versatile people are and how everyone’s needs are different and unique to their own situation. My whole working career, I have been involved in insurance in some form or another. I have always preferred being involved in the admin side of things, working on the small details. I am not the one to guide clients in the right direction for their financial planning, I leave that to our clever advisers! I need to be the one behind the scenes keeping the cogs in the machine turning.
