Itumeleng Merafe

I started my career as a retail treasury consultant at Investec, servicing individuals and small corporates. Thereafter I led a team of cash investment consultants whose primary responsibility was to retain and grow the retail deposit client base. I joined the Treasury Structuring team in 2011 as a consultant and was appointed as head of the team in 2015. In September 2020 I was appointed as Head of Sales for Investec for Business focusing on building and developing the lending business in the midmarket space.

The primary focus of the team is to provide structured working capital and asset finance solutions to clients to assist them in optimizing the growth of their businesses. 

I hold a BCom in Economics and Investment management. I have also completed the Finance Executive Development Programme at Cass Business School, hold an ACI dealing certificate and a Masters in the management of finance and investments.
I am a 2017 Archbishop Tutu Fellow and completed the Harvard Business School Programme For Leadership Development (PLD) in 2019.
