Shaun Nkwazi

Business Development Specialist


Shaun is the ambassador for fighting black tax. He’s subtle and controversial all rolled into one. He spent more time in other countries growing up than his own, spending two years at a time in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Belgium, Ethiopia and China to name a few. He also spent more time knowing he hated snow than any man should.

“Tell me you’re an expat without telling me you’re an expat,” are the words which start Shaun off in a record-breaking nostalgic memory-retelling of schools without uniforms, accents without homes and photographs saved with a location…

Shaun's foray into financial advice began with a simple, yet profound, motivation: he was a 20-year-old who’d been supported and treasured and sent to private schools his whole life by amazing parents but… without a way to repay them. What started as a personal quest for financial stability has evolved into a deeply fulfilling career, driven by the difference he makes in people's lives and their changing perspectives on wealth.

Marked by the unwavering guidance and belief of a remarkable wealth manager, Twape’s mentorship has provided Shaun with unparalleled support, patience, and encouragement, fueling his growth and development in the industry.

Now it may seem from all this upheaval that Shaun moving to Mauritius to take his financial career to the next level is just one more country, another tickbox marked. But it’s exactly the opposite – the turmoil and disorder has made Shaun who he is; it’s made him identify as resilient, as devaluation-proofed, as hard currency, as African.

Shaun finds immense satisfaction in retirement planning and investment management. He takes to heart finding clients who have a tightrope to walk with their complex financial decisions where he can help to optimise their portfolios for long-term growth and stability. His expertise and experience is lived, it’s real-life, he relates to diverse needs and challenges, and finds perfect solutions for what seem like insurmountable financial problems.

For us as Africans, family finances are intricately intertwined, and finding the right balance is Shaun’s top priority. He especially loves being able to pay it forward, the way his parents have for him. One memorable success story involves a mother struggling to send her second daughter to university in the UK where he remembers her tears of relief with reverence, knowing that one day, she will tell a grandchild a story of wealth that will mean more than just money; that will mean education, freedom and life.

Shaun’s approach to financial advice is characterized by a blend of integrity, innovation, and a deep commitment to his clients' financial well-being. His journey from a financially struggling youth to a trusted business development specialist underscores his dedication to making a lasting impact on those he serves.
