Nkazi Sokhulu is the Co-founder & CEO of Yalu; a life insurance company that’s focused on reshaping the way South Africans engage with the biggest, but least understood form of insurance: credit life. Yalu brings a number of first time innovations to the credit life market and is seeing a great take-up response from ordinary South Africans. Prior to Yalu, Nkazi was the COO and co-founder of FNB Life. Prior to FNB, Nkazi was the executive assistant to the CEO of Old Mutual, Ralph Mupita, before cutting his teeth in the company’s tied advisory distribution division. He has also worked in a number of countries as a management consultant at McKinsey. Nkazi is a University of Cape Town finance graduate, which was made possible by the Mandela Rhodes Scholarship; and obtained his MBA from Columbia University, which made possible by the FirstRand Laurie Dippenaar Scholarship. In his spare time, Nkazi is a member of the Mandela Rhodes Foundation Audit and Risk Committee and pretends to know what he is doing in raising a 5yr old and 2yr old with his long-suffering, patient wife.
