The Wealth Manager: Securities of the Year award is based on quality and professionalism, which looks at client interaction, the level of education and skills of staff, practice management and compliance. It further considers the level of embracing the PSG strategy, which entails being a strong brand ambassador and supporting the key initiatives of the firm and its profitability, in terms of revenue growth as well as the total value of assets and premiums under administration and/or management.
In 1996 van Rensburg joined Huysamer and Stals in Windhoek as an equity analyst and economist. After qualifying as a member of the Namibian Stock Exchange and the South African Institute of Stockbrokers, he moved into stockbroking and portfolio management. The PSG Windhoek office was established in 2001 after a buyout by the Namibian management and the South African PSG.
