Angela Sayle joined the Veritas Wealth team in Newlands in September 2013, and is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® Professional who has passed the Key Individual and Rep Regulatory Exams. Angela holds a Bachelor of Social Science degree from the University of Cape Town and obtained a Certified Financial Planning qualification from the University of the Free State in 2009.
Angela brings over 20 years’ experience in the financial services industry to Veritas, having worked for a number of independent financial advisory practices in both Johannesburg and Cape Town. Most recently, she spent nine years with Southwood Financial Planning in Cape Town.
While she’d always loved the nitty gritty of the financial side of things, it was at Southwood that Angela realised she wanted to play a more direct role in guiding people in the right direction financially. She believes that most people don’t make good decisions around money, and with so much confusing information out there to decipher and assimilate, they don’t understand that financial planning is actually simple. Recognising the need for good financial advice spurred her on to complete her CFP diploma.
The Veritas philosophy and way of doing business has long resonated with Angela and is what attracted her to the company. She likes the way the Veritas planners are interested in their clients as people, rather than just their finances; getting to know what their lifestyles are like and how they think. By getting involved on a personal level, she feels she can help with financial guidance far more effectively.
Angela was born in Johannesburg, but is now settled in Cape Town, for good. She lives in the Southern Peninsula with her husband Mark and daughters Megan and Ashleigh. With a large extended family, her life is very family-oriented, and she enjoys reading, spending time on the beach, gardening, travelling and all that Cape Town has to offer.
