We are supported by a strong and efficient administration and compliance team through our Network OpesFidelio. Our focus is on a seamless and professional delivery of all our work and our administration teams makes this a reality.
Our values drive our business and doing the right thing no matter what is one of our core drivers!
We believe in Transparency
Pretorius Wealth Solutions always provides unbiased, professional advice. We are not aligned to any institutions and our recommendations are based on your best interests. We disclose our fees, process and policies and always make sure you are fully informed.
We believe in Partnership
It has been core to our success to build long standing relationships with our clients based on mutual respect and understanding. In some cases our clients call us ‘part of the family’. We see ourselves are your partners in wealth and life matters aiming to deliver the best results wherever we can.
We believe in Trust and Integrity
Without these there can be no solid foundation for a wealth management partner. We have seen first-hand what the erosion of these two values in the financial services industry has meant for client experiences and for that reason have made it central to everything we do.
