Financial Planning Internship programs since 2014

Our Western Cape and Gauteng teams are expanded by interns that we employ every year. Initially we created our own internal internship program to aid 1-3 individuals per annum in obtaining the necessary experience in the field of financial planning to help them advance in this chosen career.
These interns are handpicked and must conform to a strict set of academic criteria while exhibiting the correct set of interpersonal skills. As an example they are expected to have completed a three year Bachelors of Commerce degree to qualify for acceptance.

In 2016 we were contacted by the Association for Savings and Investment South Africa’s (ASISA) Academy to be part of their inaugural Independent Financial Adviser “IFA” internship program. ASISA now shortlists and sponsors our interns. We are proud to form part of the initial 10 IFA practices that support and form part of the program. As a result we are now able to accept between 3 and 6 interns per annum. More information can be found here.
