NEW ANALYSTS AT FOORD
Foord recently welcomed three new analysts to the investment team, bringing with them a fresh blend experience and expertise.
Durban born Dhersan Chetty joins Foord as an analyst on the industrials and insurance sectors. An experienced analyst, Dhersan spent 10 years on the sell side (stockbroking—first with Kagiso Securities and then a lengthy tenure at UBS Investment Bank) before switching to the buy side (fund managers), where he was most recently with FNB Wealth & Investments. He holds a Bachelor of Business Science (Finance Hons) from the University of KZN and has completed courses at Ivey Business School (Toronto) and the prestigious Stanford Graduate School of Business.
Mpendulo Ncongwane joins us under Foord’s trainee analyst programme. He holds a master’s degree in chemical engineering from UCT and is enrolled for a PhD through UNISA. The programme enables young and inquiring graduates, CA’s, investment interns or non-investment professionals the chance to work alongside Foord’s experienced team, contribute meaningfully to investment research and immerse themselves in the world of asset management.
In Singapore, Foord appointed Yi Xiang Yim as an investment analyst. Yi Xiang holds a Bachelor of Business Management (summa cum laude) from the Singapore Management University.
