About Us

Africa is our home, we drive her growth.
Our strategy is to be an African focused, client-centred, digitally enabled integrated financial solutions provider, which drives Africa’s growth and creates value for all our stakeholders.

Our clients are at the centre of everything we do. This is our central organising principle in building a integrated financial solutions provider. It aligns our efforts to change the way we do things, develop our people and shift our culture, and ultimately create a sustainable competitive advantage in a changing industry.

We have a 155-year history in South Africa, and started building a franchise in sub-Saharan Africa almost 30 years ago. We have an on-the-ground presence in 20 countries on the African continent, and solid local knowledge required to operate a successful business in Africa.
