BCom (Hons), Financial Analysis and Portfolio Management UCT
Account Executive for Institutional Business at Sanlam Investments
Duma Mxenge is a self-proclaimed expert generalist who wants to gain as much experience in as many disciplines as possible. From early on, the BCom Honours graduate had his sights set on the asset management industry.
After his studies, he had short stints as an underwriter at Mutual & Federal and a trainee equity analyst at Abvest. His career path really took off in April 2006, when he started as a junior equity analyst at Sanlam Investments.
In the same way that Sanlam encouraged Mxenge to trust his instincts and go for gold, he too urges young professionals to aim high and think big. He believes whether your aspirations are big or small, it will still require the same amount of blood, sweat and tears.
