Jacques was born and bred in the Cape Winelands, and after qualifying as a tax consultant and completing his articles, his travels led him on a divergent path, one that ended up following his lifelong dream on the ski slopes of Colorado, taking up his passion of skiing and rock climbing.
He continued in the world of hospitality on his return to SA in management and consultancy roles. In time he realised that his true (and first) calling was within the financial services industry and subsequently spent the next decade establishing a reputation as a dependable and reputable advisor in the Southern Cape wealth management industry, specialising in the investment and protection of families’ hard-earned nest eggs.
Jacques and his wife Melanie recently moved his family to the Cape and settled back in his hometown of Somerset West. However, they return to the Garden Route regularly where he still services his clients, many of whom he now regards as close confidantes.
Jacques holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree in Accounting and is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER®.
The ski slopes may be far behind him but Jacques still loves being outdoors and on the weekend you will find him cycling and hiking on the beautiful wine lands mountains with his two sons.
