Andre Bakkes


Andre started in the Industry in 1985 with Ned Equity.

He became an independent Financial Planner in 1990 as he felt he could offer his clients a better selection of options.

Andre’s main goal is to provide a good service over a variety of investment and risk products

Andre feels that in assurance we all have 2 races to run:

  • Not to die before your debts have been taken care of. If you do, ensure sufficient (not too much) cover
  • To die before you money runs out when you retire. Only about 5% of people can afford to retire. The rest have to continue to work or be dependent on others.

In essence this is how Andre works within his clients’ budgets.

Being in the industry for 27 years gives him a unique way to look at investments over the longer term.

Andre is married with a twin daughter and son

He lives on a smallholding in Centurion and for leisure he is a crazy Fly fisher and a Vinyl record listener and collector.
