[South Africa] JSE appoints Allan Allison as Cape Town rep
The Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) has appointed Allan Allison as the new Cape Town Office representative. The appointment comes off the back of the JSE's endeavor to continuously effectively service clients in the Western Cape.
Allan joins the JSE team from African Harvest Fund Managers/Cadiz Asset Management, where he was Head of Dealing for 12 years.
He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and a comprehensive understanding of financial markets, well cultivated relationships and more than 25 years' experience working at both local and international companies.
Donna Nemer, Director, Capital Markets at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange says "we are very delighted that someone with his depth and breadth of market experience and expertise on the buy-side has joined the JSE team, proudly flying our flag as a Cape Townian whilst servicing our clients".
In his new role, Allison will oversee the operations of the Cape Town office, which runs all JSE-related activities and events and is the first port of call for all our Cape Town clients and stakeholders – including member firms, buy-side, listed companies, product houses as well as other stakeholders in the Western Cape.
He will also be working very closely with our team at the head office in Sandton, to ensure the continued success of the satellite office and raise the bar on client engagement and alignment.
