Featured for the third consecutive year in this exclusive list of trusted advisors, Michael is listed as a specialist in trusts as well as family governance.

The Private Client Global Elite Directory is a peer-nominated list of respected private wealth practitioners that is referred to within the industry to verify advisors’ credentials and reputation. As the directory is peer-nominated, those utilising it can be assured that the individuals named are technically strong, personable and can be relied upon to provide a high level of service.

“I am again humbled to be named in the Global Elite Directory alongside so many figures that I would consider to be industry luminaries. The Directory is an invaluable and respected source for any advisor or client seeking credible partners” Michael says.

“I would like to thank all persons who felt I warranted a listing as both a trust and a family governance specialist.   I am also very conscious that the listing is hugely dependant on the excellent and very hard work of my trust team in Standard Bank’s international fiduciary services.”
