Introducing

Marguerite Engelbrecht

Financial Planner and Coach partnering with you to rewrite your financial stories and embrace freedom.

Marguerite helps clients re-examine and challenge behaviours which no longer serve them, while co-creating a safe space in which they can learn new strategies, experiment with different approaches, and grow in confidence to effectively manage their resources of time, energy, talents and finances.

From a young age, Marguerite has been fascinated by what makes us tick as humans.

As an early adopter of fee-based financial planning, she founded LIFE Tax & Financial Planning Consultants CC in 2004 and has been journeying with client towards freedom ever since.
