Borne out of a desire to help small businesses, Nirishi Trikamjee owns and manages her own financial services business, which she operates from the Morningside branch of The Workspace.
Trikamjee is one of four owners of the NFS Group, which specialises in end-to-end financial services, including accounting, tax, compliance, company secretarial and financial planning and is proud to be 100% black-owned.
A qualified chartered accountant and member of the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA), Trikamjee cut her teeth in the food and beverage industry. She gained extensive experience in various finance roles at The South African Breweries (SAB), spanning over a decade. She headed up SAB’s Financial Services Division which included group accounting & reporting, group tax, group treasury & risk, group finance & control and employee benefits. She also headed up Africa Corporate Affairs working with regulatory, public affairs, communications and B-BEE.
As a strong female role model, Trikamjee encourages other women to “stand tall, plod on, and never give up!” Motivating her choice to use The Workspace as the base for her business, Trikamjee said it allowed her the efficiency and flexibility to focus on her clients and their needs. “The ease, being able to lock up and go, with no headache to worry about hiring a receptionist, a tea lady or worry about cleaning etc. makes it worthwhile”
