Wealth Creators SA
Derek Dingwall started his career as a life assurance agent in 1977. Derek discovered his passion for helping people by explaining in depth what cover they had and what cover they needed to be fully protected. In 1981 Derek was invited to the Million Dollar Round Table in the USA. It was in his first meeting that he was introduced to the “Whole Person Concept” which stipulated the importance of having a balanced life between family and business. Derek continued to attend the MDRT meeting till 2017 as a qualifying member. During this time Derek became a renowned international speaker, and has twice been the key note speaker at the MDRT meetings. It was the “Whole Person Concept” that ensured he enjoyed a healthy 52 years, and counting, of marriage to his lovely wife Joyce. This allowed him to enjoy time with his daughter Darlene and son Alister while they were growing up. This balance and support system allowed Derek to construct a solid financial business known as Derek A Dingwall Financial Planning. Derek built his company with the help of his loyal staff members, Jeanette Mckenzie, Linda Maaske, Sarah Mokoena, Dominique Uys, Aggie Maaske and Sharon Van Zyl.
In 2019 Derek decided it was time to implement his final plan, the succession of his life’s work. It was of huge importance that his clients be looked after by a committed team that lived by the concepts of honesty, trust and service that Derek found so crucial for the past 43 years. Derek has chosen Wealth Creators to continue his passion for caring for people.
This encompasses detailed financial planning which includes Medical Aids, Investments, Personal and Commercial short term insurance and business assurance solutions. Wealth Creators through their associated specialists also offer legal and business advice.
Derek is certain that these committed financial planners will continue his legacy into the next generation.

Investing in a market with massive amounts of uncertainty is difficult. When above inflationary returns are few and far between. The difficulties faced by asset managers such as intensifying global trade wars, navigating our rather “tricky” political climate and uncertainty over land issues can lead to performance that is disappointing to say the least.
When we experience these lack lustre returns, we naturally start to question the strategy – should we change the portfolio? Change asset managers? Is my money better off in the bank? In South Africa we are not immune to global investment trends and volatile market conditions.
Our answer is our strategy – The strategy Wealth Creators follows and continues to believe in is based on unit accumulation rather than solely share price. What does that mean? When Wealth Creators selects a fund manager to invest, our clients (and our own) hard earned money, there is countless hours of research and due diligence carried out. The core of our strategy is ‘Yield’. Yield can be defined as the income/dividends/distribution paid for owning a particular share. A portfolio that is well constructed has a high yield in conjunction with growth assets, which means in trying times as we are currently experiencing, the distributions that are paid back into your investment are reinvested, thus creating unit accumulation. Using this strategy allows us to alleviate a large portion of the volatility experienced by our current climate and will allow for an extremely powerful compounding effect when the share price rises or even returns to previous highs. With over R500,000,000 in assets under management and 90 years combined experience in financial planning, our method has been tried and tested, with the research data and analysis to support our approach. We at Wealth Creators will continue to closely monitor and manage each and every one of our clients portfolio’s and will continue to walk this road by your side.
We will gladly meet, answer any questions you may have and look forward to attaining the goals and purposes of your investments!
