Jersey Finance appoints consultant in African market


Jersey Finance has recruited a wealth management specialist in South Africa as a Consultant.

Dr Rufaro Mucheka, whose most recent role was with Nedbank Wealth Management in South Africa, will work with Jersey Finance’s Global Head of Business Development, Allan Wood.

She is a member of the Golden Key International Honour Society, an advisory member of the Women in Tech (SA) movement, an International Campaign Advisor for the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women, a Certified Financial Planner professional (CFP®) and holds an MBA and PhD from the University of Cape Town.  

“We view Rufaro’s appointment as an exciting move in our developing relationships across key markets on the African Continent," Mr Wood said. "Jersey’s finance industry has been building commercial ties there for more than two decades, which has enabled us to develop a formidable appreciation of the African economic landscape. 

“Rufaro’s special understanding and expertise will play an influential role in advising on how we build on that relationship as it continues to evolve; with Jersey increasingly active in facilitating investment in Africa by international investors, while also having the skills required to support private wealth strategies, cross-border investment and succession planning.”

 Dr Mucheka added: “With Africa being a key strategic market for Jersey, and the Island continuing to support the continent’s impressive growth story, it is important for Jersey to partner with Africans who understand the African nuances to spearhead the growth. With Jersey’s positioning as a leading international finance centre, it has the international financial muscle and reputation to connect investors to opportunities at a global scale.

"I feel humbled to be part of this storytelling of connecting Jersey to Africa. It is all about making deliberate choices that make an impact. As Mahatma Gandhi said, ‘Be the change you want to see in the world.’”
