Lisa Hudson-Peacock’s passion for her work is fuelled by giving her clients peace of mind – and control over their finances. Since founding Southwood Financial Planning in 2001, the Cape Town Certified Financial Planner’s mission has been to provide high-quality financial planning and investment advice to people committed to making the most of their money – and their lives. Lisa, who holds a BCom degree from UCT, gained a wealth of expertise while working in asset management for seven years as an analyst and fund manager. She obtained her Postgraduate Diploma in Financial Planning from the University of the Free State in 2002. She is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® professional, a member of the Financial Planning Institute and has completed the RE1 and RE5 regulatory exams.

When she’s not planning for clients, she spends time with her family – husband Simon and daughters Samantha and Rebecca – or heads outdoors, to the beach on her horse and mountain trails on foot. “I’m passionate about nature: it keeps me grounded,” she says.
