The Road Less Travelled

Bert’s Experience

In his long professional career, Bert has worked with multinational companies and governments, consulting on various financial and logistical projects in Africa, Europe and Asia.

Most notably he was recognised for his contributions to:

  • TMEA Logistics Innovation for Trade Fund (LIFT) as an business and finance expert for Nathan Inc in Kenya, Uganda, Burundi, Rwanda and Tanzania (on behalf of UK DFID).
  • Grindrod Logistics as a financing and asset audit specialist in Southern Africa.
  • GIZ as Team Leader with specialist business financial acumen, tasked with developing a Fleet Management System and Asset Management Policy for the Government of Malawi (on behalf of the German Government).
  • The Samsun Logistics Centre (SLC) funded by the EU in Samsun Turkey as a business financial planning expert (on behalf of the EU).
  • The establishment of CFS facilities for Damco, Djibouti (on behalf of the AP Moller Maersk Group) as both a financial and logistics executive.
  • A project initiated by the Investment Board of Nepal as a financial feasibility specialist (on behalf of UK DFID)

In the last ten years, Bert has changed his expertise to personal finance in the UK. This pivot led him to establish Every Investor, a platform dedicated to demystifying complex financial decisions for the everyday person. With a strong background in corporate finance, Bert recognised a gap in personal financial education and sought to fill it.

Every Investor, under Bert’s leadership, is committed to providing accurate, easy-to-understand content. The platform is designed to empower readers to make educated financial decisions, whether they are just starting to think about retirement or are well into their financial journey. 

Bert and his team of financial writers and experts focus on delivering integrity-first, people-oriented content that simplifies the complexities of later-life finance.
