Zandile grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa, and obtained her Bachelors of Business Science (Finance and Accounting) from the University of Cape Town. Her career includes extensive experience in investment banking across sub-Saharan Africa with Standard Bank Group and J.P. Morgan. Most recently, she joined Africa’s first activist hedge fund where her responsibilities include identifying investment opportunities for presentation to the Investment Committee and working with investee companies to unlock value for all stakeholders.

She also hopes to learn from an unbelievably diverse cohort, both in terms of nationality and work backgrounds.
