Johan de Villiers
Johan’s career as a mechanical engineer was short-lived when he discovered that he has a passion for numbers. His BCom qualification would soon pave the way to a career of choice. He joined Prudential in 1986 and within 5 years he’d completed all the financial planning courses available, after which he was appointed as Executive Consultant. He attended the Million Dollar Round Table in the USA and on his return made the decision to leave corporate life and start his own FSP. Johan specialised in international investments and structuring. He completed his Diploma in Personal Financial Management and obtained his qualification as CFP® Professional.
In 1997 Johan and two independent brokers merged to form Dynarc Financial Services. Johan’s specialisation in investments started at that time when they had to construct diversified investment portfolios in the local and international investment markets for their affluent clients. In 2000 he relocated to Cape Town to manage a new branch that they acquired. But the challenge of entrepreneurship once again beckoned when the new era in financial services began, and in 2002 Johan started his new FSP and is currently still involved in managing local and international investments as well as structures for key clients. In his years of experience led Johan to realise that by combining the exceptional skills and talents of key individuals within the financial advisory industry, he could bring the best advice to his clients and other financial advisors. In 2007 he met someone who shared his passion and ideas for the future and he and Johann de Clerk founded Simplisiti Asset Management.
