Our History and Objectives

As a feature of the FirstRand Group we offer South African clients the benefits of three banks in the nation, we measure our achievements by the development in our benefits as well as by the commitment we make towards our group's development.

The Acacia tree in our image logo is a portrayal of our history. Our underlying foundations cover the footprint of South Africa, and we have developed because of our dedication to serving the necessities of our customers and groups.

Tailored Cover to Meet your Needs

Throughout our services to our clients, we provide the independence that our clients can benefit from getting an insurance product, which allows them the independence of having their own tailored cover that meets their specific needs accordingly.

The Stand-alone alternative won't influence your life cover sum when a claim is made.

The benefit of the Stand-alone critical illness cover is that it gives you extensive cover that can pay out up to 3 times on related diseases.

The upside of a consolidated cover is that it is more reasonable when it comes to affordability and the cover benefits, and only pays out once. 

Life is loaded with vulnerabilities, we know this, and provide solutions for those times when you are vulnerable and suffer the risks in life.

Life Cover from R200,000 up to R10 Million

Life  cover pays out a single amount sum in case of your passing. You can pick between either our Life Simplified or Life Customized Life Cover alternatives.

Life Simplified offers you a speedy and simple option for cover up to R1 million, though Life Customized gives life cover over R1 million with more exhaustive cover alternatives and adaptability in choices, for example, Critical Illness and Disability Cover.

Whichever cover option you choose, you get the benefits of:

  • Quick cash pay-outs on mortgage insurance to pay off that home mortgage in the event of death, serious illness, or disability
  • We cover your premiums in the event that you are retrenched until you are back on track and able to start paying again
