Patrick Ralph | ACSI FLIA CeMap

CEO

Patrick, the Founder & CEO of the IIMG Group Of Companies, has a career that spans over 30 years.

From his humble beginnings, as a trainee broker in the UK in 1980, his career within the Financial Services Industry is one of resounding success.

Patrick’s drive to ensure growth within the Financial Services Industry has been a journey from developing his own Independent Brokerage to becoming the CEO of a larger group of companies.

His ability to push the boundaries and seek solutions, led to Patrick becoming a key player in preparing for the advent of the Financial Services Act in the UK, and playing an instrumental role in setting up all the requirements and qualifications for professional advisers. His leadership within his own company’s transition from a smaller brokerage to its acquisition by the larger firm, once again garnered the attention of a global insurance company.

In 2009 he founded IIMG with the key focus being on building a company which has become known for its high ethical and professional standards. The client-centric approach within IIMG, ensures that each Financial Advisor and staff member has a proprietorial attitude towards its success. This in turn equates to exceptional outcomes in the financial well-being of each and every client.

Knowledge is power………and Patrick became a sought-after speaker within the Financial Services Industry, where he had the privilege of sharing his knowledge with numerous industry professionals and was in demand by all the leading financial service companies and trade associations to speak at their meetings, being the keynote speaker at many conferences throughout the UK at venues such as the NEC in Birmingham, as well as, addressing an audience numbering in the thousands at Wembley Conference Centre on more than one occasion.

Patrick and his wife currently live in Cape Town, surrounded by the idyllic scenery of Table Mountain. His newest goal is to realise his life-long ambition………Hitting a golf ball straight!!!

Angelina has more than 20 years experience within the Sales & Marketing Industry; she has grown to not only understand those she connects with but to listen and know what drives them as individuals. At the core, she is creative and brings this ability into how she approaches each new challenge. She has experience working with both start-ups and larger corporates; however, prefers the smaller more personalized business setting where her customer-centric approach adds the most value. Her passion within the Financial Industry was sparked 8 years ago when she worked as a Personal Financial Advisor for Old Mutual; this brought about a realization that many individuals do not fully understand how to passively grow their wealth or build a legacy that will last for generations to come.
