What I've learnt over 13 years, whilst helping families on their financial journey

You can do some of this on your own, I recommend that you do.  What you can’t do on your own is see your “blind spots”.  You don’t know what you don’t know and when you find out, it might be too late.  

My passion is working with families to help them develop their financial plan, as I work with you and your family to design your plan together.

Being an independent financial planner with an Advanced Certificate in Financial Planning (from Milpark Business School) and not influenced by an insurance company or commissions, allows me the unique opportunity to help you design your best life.  

In an uncertain world, where finances keep most people awake at night, Terence is a crucial ally in future-proofing oneself. What makes Terence unique, apart from his dedication, communicativeness, and useful information-sharing, he, more than most, listens and understands. In my own experience, Terence was (and is) kind and patient in learning about my goals, and has been an essential source of knowledge and guidance in making them reality. That, and his clear interest in the client (rather than pushing products onto clients to earn commissions), stands him out in his field, and I would highly commend him (and his company, Rich Ideas) to anyone interested in seriously planning for their financial future and well-being.

Am I really an independent financial planner?

YES! I am the only director and 100% owner of Rich Ideas Group (Pty) Ltd, FSP #50569.  I am not influenced, nor compelled to support any particular investment product or insurance provider.  I do have contracts with many of South Africa’s largest providers, but I also work with you to help you align your resources (capital and time) to what serves you best, with providers you feel are a great fit and help you reach your goals.

I like to consider myself your “go to guy” or your families “chief financial officer“, working with you to understand what is important to you and celebrating with you along the way.
