Our Leadership Team

Refilwe Mofokeng

 

Director

A Sesotho speaking BComm Economics Honours UCT graduate, born in Soweto.

Her personal motto is “service above self”.

 

“I believe that human beings exist to be of service, to utilize our inherent endowments, be it talents or inclinations to leave this world better than we found it, as the cliché goes. This belief has been the motivating force behind everything I have done, and everything that I do.

Growing up in Soweto, I saw that many in my community, especially my family, lacked the financial knowledge and skills to make decisions that will help improve their living circumstances which sparked my interest in economics, finance, and the financial industry because I saw an area in which I could give back to my community.”

Through volunteering, I have had the privilege of engaging with people from different backgrounds and assisting them in developing sustainable solutions to improve their circumstances.  

Health is wealth – I do what I can to promote mental health and wellness in myself and those around me.  

I believe that life is too short to be doing anything that doesn’t feed your soul or isn’t connected to what you believe is your purpose or destiny, which is why I am intentional about where I allocate my time and energy.
