About Wynand

Wynand started privateAdvisor financial services in 2013 as an independant financial planning practice so that he could serve his clients with no external sales pressure from the big product providers.

With more than 14 years experience in planning for and advising a broad range of clients Wynand feels confident that no single solution can be appropriate for everyone. He feels that even though the choice of an appropriate product solution is important the advice process should take centre stage

In an advice driven practice a comprehensive financial plan should take a range of factors into consideration, not only facts and figures or the lowest premiums, but also personal preferences and unique client circumstances.

Wynand is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® professional and a member of the Financial Planning Institute of South Africa. He subscribes to the FPI code of ethics and believes that continuous professional development is crucial to maintaining a practice of best advice.

With a passion for getting to know his clients, an analytical mindset and a natural sense of humor Wynand is able to break down the sometimes complex and daunting financial challenges that clients face. He believes that when a person understands their choices and their potential consequences they can make informed decisions.

Wynand enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters and keeps fit by mountain biking.
