Anthony Nicklin

Anthony Nicklin is a senior client manager at Nedbank Private Wealth, one of South Africa's leading and largest wealth management businesses. He has been helping high net worth individuals, families, charitable trusts and foundations to manage their financial affairs for more than thirty years. Much of Anthony's time is spent working on large portfolios, developing wealth creation and investment strategies that are tailored to meet the specific objectives of his numerous clients. Assisted by a team of highly specialised portfolio and fiduciary experts, Anthony is able to offer comprehensive and integrated advice about the preservation and growth of private wealth, and the general management of private assets. He has an impressive track record in exceeding clients' expectations and his expertise is highly sought after. Anthony has managed the Hans Hoheisen Charitable Trust since its inception, helping oversee its growth into what is now the largest private trust dedicated to the conservation of South Africa’s flora and fauna. The success of the Hans Hoheisen Trust is particularly satisfying for Anthony as it accords with his own enthusiasm for the spirit of public philanthropy, especially the kind of giving that helps sustain and conserve South Africa's natural environment for the benefit of all the country's inhabitants. Anthony previously worked at Syfrets Trust and Investec, before joining the Board of Executors, which went on to become Nedbank Private Wealth.
