History in a nutshell


Pollination Capital has its roots in Intellifin, a financial consulting business established in 2003. Intellifin initially focused on consulting services within the corporate finance sector but has expanded to also include corporate tax services. These tax services are now offered by Intellifin Corporate Tax Consulting in association with Nubis.Tax.

The M&A transaction advisory business was transferred to a separate company – Pollination Capital – in 2013. Pollination Capital was appointed as an approved M&A Advisor of Worth.Business in 2023.

Johann has always been at the heart of these companies and developed his skills and experience in the corporate finance consulting environment within Intellifin and then later Pollination Capital. He worked with various clients ranging from multi-billion rand corporates to smaller companies.
