Our History

Our History

Finfocus was established in May 2003 by Amy van Niekerk, Fanie van Wyk and Schalk van Niekerk and was joined by Callie Snyman in August 2003. They were four experienced and professional CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® practitioners with established practices and were all formerly employed by Old Mutual – Amy as an Executive Financial Adviser, Fanie and Callie as Sales Team Managers and Advisers and Schalk with experience as a Broker Consultant and Adviser.

Amy van Niekerk became the Managing Director and Dr Gerhard S van Niekerk, a retired Managing Director of Old Mutual SA, became the first Chairman of the Finfocus Board and they held these positions until August 2018 when Schalk van Niekerk took over as Managing Director. Under Gerhard van Niekerk’s guidance Finfocus developed sound business policies, processes and practices which we still hold dear and which have become an ingrained part of our company culture.

The company has grown and flourished over the years. We envisage further growth in staff and expertise in the years to come. Our 5 senior advisors have 127 years in the industry. Our Board members have combined experience of more than 160 years in the industry.
