Meet Yoza, Chief Executive Officer

As a powerful businesswoman with a fervent belief in women empowerment, and the power of education, Yoza joined Mergence Investment Managers in 2019 as Joint Managing Director. In September 2021, she was appointed as Chief Executive Officer as part of high-level changes to the Mergence executive leadership team to meet the company’s strong growth.

Prior to joining Mergence, Yoza had 17 years’ investment banking and principal investing experience at several major South African banks. But what is interesting about this multi-talented woman is that she worked in the medical field first, obtaining a medical degree from the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits) in 1998 and working in the medical field for four years before moving into finance, graduating with an MBA at Wits in 2003.
