A financial advisor who helps
South Africans manage their
money responsibly.



I was born and raised in the small town of Pietermaritzburg in the Midlands where I attended St Charles College on a full academic scholarship. Cricket was the sport I enjoyed most, however because of a recurring knee injury; I was unable to pursue it seriously.

University & Early Career

After high school, I attended the University of KwaZulu-Natal and completed my Bcomm in Management & Economics in 2010. Upon completion of my degree, I explored the idea of becoming a financial advisor but opted for the life of a business owner instead. I began work at my parent’s compressed air business and it was there where I started to hone my business knowledge. After a few years of hard graft growing and expanding the business into new areas, I grew restless and decided to expand my horizons.

I took a leap of faith, packed up my life and moved to JHB to work for one of our suppliers – an international compressed air company offering me corporate benefits as a sales rep. After less than a year, I realised I wanted more and started applying for finance jobs.

Finding Financial Advising

Unfortunately, my young age and experience only working at industrial companies, meant I was not a great candidate for corporate finance jobs. After sending out over 300 CV’s, and getting little return, I decided to pursue an opportunity as a financial advisor at Eq-Fin, a company owned by Liberty. It was there that I received my introduction into the world of financial advice and realised that it was what I was born to do.

When Covid hit, I returned back to Pietermaritzburg and began to get a lot more involved in my parent’s business again.I recognised that the entrepreneurial spirit in me is too strong, and I would only truly be happy if I had full control over my products, processes and quality of service. I made the difficult decision to leave Liberty as a tied-broker and start my own brokerage, Fable Wealth (Pty) Ltd (FSP No. 52115). And that’s where we are today.
