As part of our culture of innovation, Pallidus founded Pallidus Debt Solutions on 1 April 2019. The business is led by Louis du Plessis as managing director.

Louis started his banking career 12 years ago. He previously worked at Nedbank and Standard Chartered Bank. In 2013 he joined Rand Merchant Bank where he was an executive member of the Trade and Working Capital division.

Adding to his extensive experience in banking and trade finance across multiple jurisdictions in sub-Saharan Africa, Louis has worked on some of the most innovative structures used in the market today.

Louis was joined by Daniël Boeyens on 22 April as an Executive Director in the Pallidus Debt Solutions business. Daniël was in the Nedbank Corporate and Investment Banking business as part of the Mining and Resources team. He has significant debt finance experience gained from his work in the South African corporate landscape.

In line with our core Pallidus values, innovation is at the heart of Pallidus Debt Solutions, which we combine with experience and expertise to deliver market-leading debt and funding solutions in the areas of trade finance and lending.
