Andrew embarked on his career at Liberty Life in early 2003 as a tied agent. Over time he realised the importance of independent advice as providers compete in different markets. He founded Toro Financial Planners with 3 partners in mid-2006. The firm has grown significantly since its inception, and represents all of the major providers in the investment, long-term, short-term, healthcare and estate planning sectors.
Andrew has two industry related qualifications, namely Finance Honours from the University of the Witwatersrand completed in 2001 and since 2005 he is also a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® professional. He achieved overall distinctions for both qualifications. In 2005, he finished as top student for 2 of the 4 subjects in the Postgraduate Diploma in Financial Planning (Personal Financial Planning & The Financial Planning Environment) though the University of the Free State.
Andrew is a firm believer in fairness and transparency and is proud to serve as an Ambassador for the Transparency Task Force.
