Nicki van Vuuren

Executive Assistant

Nicki is the newest addition to the Northern Cross Wealth Management team, who has spent 15 years of her career in hospitality.

She is excited to join the financial services industry and knows that she can make a meaningful impact on our clients, offering only the best service and attention.

She aspires to complete her South African Regulatory Exams (RE1 & 5) and CISI qualification in Compliance.

Nicki is a doting mom, loves the outdoors and cooking up a storm.

As head of Business Development at Northern Cross, it is my responsibility to introduce potential clients to the advisors who will help them to fully understand their overall financial positions.

Whether you are based in your country of origin, or living internationally long-term, I ensure that you are connected with the process of independent financial planning to progress you toward your personal goals. I particularly enjoy working within an international profession as I get to experience new perspectives from people across the globe on a daily basis.

Whilst working closely with Michael to learn more about the advisory role, I am also studying towards my CISI Investment Advice Diploma which will eventually allow me to advise my portfolio of clients, on my journey to becoming a Chartered Financial Planner.
