BUN BOOYENS LOUBSER

Bun is a Matie alumnus and proud Dagbreker. He is passionate about endurance sports, including mountain biking, trail running and triathlons. He holds a B.Com degree with majors in Marketing Management, Investment Management, Financial Planning as well as Taxation.

He started his career as an Investment Specialist at PPS Investments and later transitioned into marketing and business development role at PPS Insurance Company, focusing on the young professional market segment. It was during these years that he realised the potential of this market segment, but more importantly his deeply vested passion in assisting young professionals to make their best, and often most influential long-term financial decisions, before entering the competitive corporate landscape.

Bun decided to let his entrepreneurial-spirit take charge midway through 2014 and started Grad Wealth, a career development and marketing services provider aimed at helping young professionals be the best they can be before leaving tertiary institutions for the real adult world. More importantly, he wanted to become an independent Wealth Practitioner assisting professionals in correctly structuring their financial affairs in order to maximise efficiency and to drive specific outcome-based results.

He aims to work with these sought after individuals, building relationships based on trust, values and mutual respect. "The outcome for our clients is a significantly higher chance of achieving their financial ambitions during later relevant stages of their lives and this includes guidance in respect of making the right tactical decions throughout — to enjoy the lifestyle they envisioned as young graduates transitioning through various but equally important life stages."

RUAN STANDER

Ruan showed keen interest in a career in financial services as a teenager and decided to study towards this profession accordingly. For his undergraduate studies, he completed a bachelors degree in Financial Planning at Stellenbosch University, double majoring in Financial Planning and Investment Management. It was also during his years as a Matie student that Ruan and Bun became acquainted.

In 2014 Ruan enrolled at the University of Stellenbosch Business School and completed his post graduate diploma in Financial Planning whilst in the full time employment of a reputable Stellenbosch-based financial advisory firm. After successfully completing his board and regulatory exams in February of 2015, Ruan (then 22) became the youngest Certified Financial Planner® (CFP®) in South Africa.

Ruan speedily developed a passion and preference to work with other young professionals like him, and one evening, shortly after Bun had successfully launched Grad Wealth, their paths crossed again in Stellenbosch at a social event. Not long after this engagement, their paths finally converged when they decided to open a new franchise of Constans Financial Services in Somerset West, and the rest is history.

"We’re not living in the 1900's anymore. Today you can get paid to post a picture on Instagram, you can start a business by obtaining capital through crowd funding, and if you’re in South Africa – you can probably do just about anything with the carte blanche we have for startups. Whether you’re planning to start your own business or professional practice, or grinding through the ranks at a big corporate, you need a modern and dynamic financial strategy, because that’s exactly what times are: Ever-changing."

“During my previous employment at a boutique Stellenbosch-based asset management firm, we had the pleasure of having the brilliant businessman Mr. G.T. Ferreira as our neighbour and during a sit-down discussion one day he said something that ever since gave me a better fundamental understanding of the word “risk”. “The difference between the wealthy and the ultra wealthy, is that the ultra wealthy take calculated risks, but risks never the less.” This perspective has since motivated Ruan to serve his clients to the best of his ability and also to help them avoid the wrong risks, but also to motivate them to take it in their stride to pursue the right ones.
