Jean Craven
Group CEO at Barak Fund Management


With two decades of experience in building and managing commodity trading and financing businesses at leading South African financial institutions, my current principal business activity is CEO at Barak Fund Management – which manages one of Africa’s largest credit fund platforms covering short and medium term alternative credit funds, impact funds as well as commodity and FX risk management advisory units, with overall total committed assets under management of USD1.3 billion.

My heart lies strongly in social responsibility ventures and I am proud to be actively involved in, an international charity that I founded that undertakes daring swims to raise funds for children in need. The philanthropic endeavour has raised in excess of USD2 million for children's charities since Madswimmer’s inception in 2009.
