Rachel Bentley, director of the financial services and private client team at PwC, has ‘been focusing on expanding our private wealth practice in Africa. PwC in the UK has a strategic alliance with our Africa network, and we’re working together to share knowledge and resources,’ she says. She also has a strong US client base, as well as a deep knowledge of UK and Japanese taxation, making her the ideal choice to advise HNWs and UHNWs on cross-border tax and compliance issues. ‘It’s a strategic area of work for us. We’re mainly focused on South Africa and Nigeria, which are certainly the biggest economies in Africa. There are so many investment opportunities here,’ she says.
