Plan For Your Child's Education
We all want the best for our children and the best way to do that is to provide them with a good education.
On average, university graduates with a bachelor’s degree earn around 60% more per year than someone with only a matric certificate. Clearly, one of the best investments you can make for your children is an investment in their educational future.
You may think you'll be able to put away enough cash in a savings account or will simply take out a bank loan when the time comes but you might want to reconsider that position. An ordinary, non-specialised bachelor's degree currently costs around R30 000 per annum.
The bad news is that tertiary education costs will continue to rise. And remember, there are going to be many other school and education costs you'll have to meet along the way (residence fees, travelling expenses, car and insurance repayments, food, clothing, pocket money, etc.) A three year university degree right now could easily end up costing you R150 000 or more.
But don’t despair! Even without time on your side — if your children are teenagers, for example — a sound investment strategy, coupled with knowledge of other university financing options can put your children on the road to a valuable university degree.
Wills & Trusts
Need help setting up control and management of assets and property?
A business trust is a legal vehicle to do business in,
set up mainly to protect personal assets against the risk of a business failing.
I will impart all of the regulations, protections and liabilities associated with a business trust.
Interested in a business trust?
Have you planned for your family's future?
Trusts and Wills are both useful estate planning devices.
A will ensures that your inheritance is distributed according to your wishes.
A trust safeguards the needs of dependants who can’t necessarily take care of themselves.
Is your legacy in good hands?
We moved from a previous financial advisor to Mark about 2 years ago. He looked at our current policies & changed them where necessary & made them more financially viable.
Mark offers great advice & can help you with anything financially. He also assisted us in setting up our testaments & last wills. He is honest, helpful, friendly, intelligent & a great person to know.
We have & would refer Mark to colleagues, family & friends.

Thank you for going out your way for us and our company, the days and times we have changed, you have been a total star ,always understanding .
Thanks for the friendly and understanding matter you handle all our enquiries .
Mark reached out to my husband and I with the offer to review our existing policies. No pressure – just a “look over” to see if any improvements could be made in our favour. We received policies that had better cover and addressed some real glaring issues in the fine print of the old policies. A huge improvement, without having to pay any more than we were already paying.
Mark is friendly, professional and always prepared to go the extra mile to help where he can. We would not hesitate in recommending Mark Weston’s services.
