Melinda Jonker, a B.Com. Investment Management and Banking graduate of the Department of Economics, participated in the Global Traders Trophy final in the Netherlands this week.

She won the South African Traders Trophy competition in 2011 and received R100 000 in cash. She also got the opportunity to compeat the NYSE Euronext in Amsterdam against 19 national winners from around the world.
Her lecturer, Dr Johan Coetzee, said her participation in Amsterdam and representing South Africa was a remarkable feat. She competed against the cream of the crop from all the major South African universities’ postgraduate students in the national competition as an undergraduate. Melinda is now employed by Nedbank Capital in Sandton.
