Focused on financial solutions for the international market with only the client in mind, Matthew is a cross-border tax structuring and investment specialist with the unique knowledge and experience that comes from having lived abroad for many years.
His familiarity with tax regimes and regulations is as important as his understanding of the common challenges experienced by expats and has resulted in a client base that spans the globe. With experience in both the local and international market, he is able to understand and appreciate the limitations imposed on local financial advisors with limited product choice and the lack of options for genuine tax efficiency from local financial service providers.
Being a part of the Holborn team has enabled Matthew to offer his clients a much greater range of solutions to help grow and protect their wealth and investments from currency devaluation, unnecessary taxation and the fear of government repatriation, by investing their assets outside of South Africa in primary currency, using a protected, legally robust structure in an investment grade country that offers government-backed investor protection schemes.
Matthew is a qualified member of the UK Chartered Institute of Securities and Investments, which allows him to select custom made investment portfolios. Using only the best-in-class top quartile international funds which utilize independent benchmarks like Morningstar or S&P, matched to your risk profile, Matthew helps his clients navigate the 55,000 investment fund choices available in the international investment universe.
