Diekie is a financial planner and has more than 20 years of experience in the financial services industry. He started his career as a candidate attorney with De Klerk & Van Gend Attorneys in Cape Town in 1998 and was admitted as an attorney in 2000. At that stage, he was introduced to the financial services industry by chance and found it so interesting, that he changed occupations and became a Liberty adviser. In 2005 he started his own independent financial planning practice and by May 2006 Subventum Financial Services CC was registered. This allowed him to change the way he assisted his clients – from being a Life Insurance agent to being an independent financial planner.
Diekie believes that, in order to be truly professional, one must be fiercely independent. His interactions with clients are very personal and based on integrity at all times. The relationship that he forms with each client is long-term oriented, enabling him to understand his clients’ changing needs in their journey through life. Diekie is married to Nici and they have two boys. His family enjoys spending time outdoors, whether it is relaxing around the pool, taking part in sports over weekends, or camping during long summer holidays.
Diekie is a Certified Financial Planner® professional and has the following qualifications:
• BA (Law) (University of Stellenbosch)
• LLB (University of Stellenbosch)
• Post Graduate Diploma in Financial Planning (UFS)
