Johannesburg, 4 September 2020 - The South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA) has announced its finalists for the 2020 Top-35-under-35 Chartered Accountants competition.

The Top-35-under-35 competition was launched by SAICA in 2014 to recognise its young CA(SA) achievers. It has proven to be a huge success in recognising and promoting young CAs(SA) under the age of 35 who are not just achieving extraordinary results in their professional capacity, but also have a significant impact on society.

The list of finalists can be accessed here. The winners will be announced later in 2020 at an event that will be open to the media. All 35 finalists are individuals who have not only successfully pursued their career dreams, but have also excelled and moved swiftly through the ranks to lead operations within notable organisations.

The competition’s proud sponsors are Makosi, Adapt IT, CaseWare Africa, CAMAF, and QuickBooks, who have recognised the value of the competition as it provides a platform to promote young CAs(SA) who are making a valuable contribution in their communities, as well as to the economy of South Africa.


The South African Institute of Chartered Accountants (SAICA), South Africa’s pre-eminent accountancy body, is widely recognised as one of the world’s leading accounting institutes. The Institute provides a wide range of support services to more than 50 000 members and associates who are chartered accountants (CAs[SA]), as well as associate general accountants (AGAs[SA]) and accounting technicians (ATs[SA]), who hold positions as CEOs, MDs, board directors, business owners, chief financial officers, auditors and leaders in every sphere of commerce and industry, and who play a significant role in the nation’s highly dynamic business sector and economic development.

Chartered Accountants are highly valued for their versatile skill set and creative lateral thinking, that's why all of the top 100 Global Brands employ Chartered Accountants.
