Austen Morris Associates is proud to welcome our first group of Shanghai recruits, Willem Le Roux and Jackson Fang.
Willem holds a BCom degree in Statistics and Economics and is a candidate in the Chartered Financial Analyst program, having completed both Level I and II in the top 10 percentile of candidates globally. The world of investment management caught his attention at an early age, it presented him with everything he was looking for – he could now start to apply the skills he had acquired during his studies, in an industry where the results are measurable, coupled with a career where he could truly make an impactful difference for his clients by helping them attain their financial goals.
Jackson is a recent graduate with a BSc (Hons) in Property Studies from the University of the Witwatersrand. In addition to being highly proficient in English, he spent a year in Taiwan and is now at the intermediate level of proficiency in Mandarin Chinese. As a Taiwanese South African, Jackson has a unique ability to bridge Western and Eastern markets, he has always had a keen interest in the Asian market, through Austen Morris Associates he has been provided the opportunity to pursue this interest by joining our Shanghai branch.
Jackson and Willem are currently working on becoming qualified Consultants under the guidance and leadership of Africa Regional Manager & Partner, Ian Edwards and Founding Senior Partner, Greg Morris. They will be jetting off to Shanghai in 2019 to start their new careers in one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the world. This will take place under the management of Senior Partners, Jon Holland & William Coppin, with guidance from our Managing Senior Partner, James Colclough, all of whom have decades of experience to pass on and ensure their offshore success.
Welcome to the team guys, we look forward to working with you both, helping to grow and shape your careers.
