“I have known and worked with Nina for nearly 15 years and she has lead Equiom’s relationship in its capacity as trustee to our multi-billion dollar provident fund over this period. In my view Nina displays leadership characteristics which go way beyond her role and are few and far between. She has been able to understand both our client needs as well as those of the ultimate end user (the scheme member) and build levels of trust and understanding which, no matter what the challenges between us, always results in positive outcomes.”
