PSG Konsult, the advice-led financial services firm listed on the Namibian Stock Exchange, has announced that Brian van Rensburg, Director of PSG Namibia based in Windhoek, has been named as PSG’s Stockbroker of the Year for 2015. The award was announced at a gala dinner at the firm’s annual conference and awards ceremony in Sun City late last week.
Dan Hugo, head of PSG Distribution, said at the ceremony that the award was a significant achievement, adding that Van Rensburg had won based on a number of criteria that include quality and professionalism, which considers client interaction, the level of education and skills of staff, practice management and compliance. Other criteria include embracing the PSG strategy, which entails being a strong brand ambassador and supporting the key initiatives of the firm as well as of course profitability, in terms of both total revenue and growth in revenue and assets under administration and/or management.
Van Rensburg joined Huysamer and Stals in Windhoek in 1996, as an equity analyst and economist. After qualifying as a member of the Namibian Stock Exchange and the South African Institute of Stockbrokers, he moved into stockbroking and portfolio management.
The PSG Namibia office was established in 2001 after a buyout by Namibian management and the South African PSG.
Van Rensburg attended Windhoek High School before he obtained a B.Com in Money and Banking and a B.Com Honours in the same field from the University of the Free State in South Africa.
