Katrien is a fiduciary specialist who focusses on estate planning and trust-related services. Katrien is an admitted attorney with a BCom(Law), LLB from Stellenbosch University. Katrien further obtained a Post Graduate Diploma in Tax Law (HDip Tax) from the University of the Witwatersrand.
Katrien grew up in the Western Cape and on completion of her studies she joined ENSAfrica in Johannesburg, where she gained experience in banking and finance law, local and international tax and corporate restructurings. During this time her interest in private client work in the fiduciary space was sparked by exposure to estate planning, tax planning for individuals and drafting of wills and trust deeds.
She then decided to join the fiduciary services industry as a fiduciary specialist, working with high-net-worth individuals as professional independent trustee, administering trusts, providing estate planning services and drafting of wills and various agreements.
Family is the most important thing in life to Katrien. She enjoys spending quality time with her husband and children, and taking walks with her dogs.
