Elmey Olivier

Relationship Manager

Professionally

 

I graduated from the North West University in South Africa with a Bachelors of Commerce in Law and Economics. After university I started working as a paralegal while obtaining an Advanced Diploma in Estate and Trust Administration. After two years of working in the legal industry I decided to follow my passion in finance and started working as a financial advisor while obtaining a Postgraduate Diploma in Financial Planning.

Personally

 

I love running, cooking and the Springboks but apart from that, I enjoy camping and hiking and to be surrounded by nature. I mainly read fantasy fiction books to relax, and you would usually find me with a book in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other.

What I did during lockdown

 

During lockdown I studied for my Postgraduate Diploma, made an Instagram page for my dog and read an unhealthy number of books.
