Press Release: It is with much pleasure we announce the appointment of George Dell to the MitonOptimal team in Cape Town with effect from 1st July 2013. George joins MitonOptimal with a 28 year career in the Financial Services Industry gained from grass roots to senior levels and brings an in-depth understanding of the Industry to seek, identify and develop business opportunities and solutions.

His recent role was at PSG Group, initially in Sales & Business Development at PSG Fund Management and more recently as Head of Wholesale Marketing at PSG Asset Management.
