Plexus Wealth was created after Plexus and Grant Thornton Financial Planning merged in September 2012.

The respective founders of both businesses, Dr Prieur du Plessis and Eric Jones, supported by a passionate team of experts, have since grown the company as a thriving independent financial planning business with its own range of funds. Today Plexus Wealth enjoys a national presence with representation in Stellenbosch, Durban and Johannesburg. All offices are overseen by an equity partner.

The company is acknowledged for its independent insight in an uncertain world. Its success is evident in the enviable performance track record set by the Plexus Wealth funds as well as our many satisfied clients. Our holistic offering and objective approach to financial planning ensure we are well placed to meet your needs too!

Our mission

Every client is different and has their own unique situation, goals and dreams. So, we are dedicated to meeting the individual needs of every client. Driven by a sense of purpose and integrity, we strive to grow the assets of our clients and help them achieve the financial outcomes they desire.
