Nkemdilim Odinkalu

Business Development Specialist


Dilim believes that we all have a superhero inside of us. He swears that the human spirit is invincible. And that even though life is not fair, we have a duty to make it better for those we love.

From watching the Patriot Act at 7, to a one-on-five fight for the smartest, littlest girl in his class at 9 to taking up martial arts at 12 to playing rugby for Worth in Sussex. When you translate all the little things growing up to the career path Dilim has chosen, it becomes an unyielding force to fight for the preservation and protection of the creation of hard-earned African wealth.

His path to financial advice is deeply rooted in a legacy of justice and human rights. With a father who chaired Nigeria’s Human Rights Commission and a mother who led the Nigerian Feminist Forum, Dilim grew up amidst advocacy and integrity. This unique upbringing instilled in him a profound understanding of financial management's critical role in safeguarding rights and ensuring fairness. Inspired by his parents' commitment to justice, Dilim pursued a law degree, focusing on financial compliance. Key experiences, such as his internship at Shell Nigeria and his role as a compliance analyst at Credit Agricole, honed his ethical compass and paved the way for his transition into financial advising.

Dilim’s compliance background ensures that clients' investments meet regulatory standards, minimizing risks and fostering trust. Dilim works with experienced financial advisers and loves finding clients who have not had a uniquely world-class African wealth advisory experience before. Guided by principles of integrity, transparency, and client-centricity, Dilim believes in providing honest, unbiased advice. His family motto, "to come to equity with clean hands," underscores his commitment to maintaining integrity in all his endeavours. His grandfather’s words, “Remember an Odinkalu only has his integrity” are literally tattooed on his forearm, reminding him of the honour from which he came every minute of the day.

Dilim's journey in financial advising is characterized by a steadfast commitment to integrity, a deep understanding of compliance, and a client-centric approach. His background in law and financial compliance, combined with his dedication to ongoing learning and technological adaptation, ensures that clients receive exceptional guidance tailored to their unique needs and goals.
