Yaw majored in Information Systems and Accounting at the University of Cape Town. He then obtained a post graduate diploma in Accounting after which he served his articles at PriceWaterhouseCoopers. After completing his articles he qualified as a chartered accountant and was hired by the National Empowerment Fund where he cut his teeth in the venture capital/private equity world. He was then recruited by Standard Bank’s Corporate and Investment Banking division as a senior manager in the new business and investment banking solutions department based in Cape Town.
