While numbers were his professional language, Herbert Wigwe’s life was not confined to spreadsheets. His social media pages tell the story of a man who embraced life holistically. With a picture here and a quote there, he documented several layers of his life, inspiring youths across the globe of what is possible.

He devoured books while polo fields replaced trading floors for leisure. A family man, Wigwe’s children were his biggest achievements.

He loved to keep fit and ran not just for fitness but to chase the quiet hum of his thoughts—his life, numbered in success and measured in love.
