Belief in teamwork, togetherness, and knowing that a lot can be achieved when people work together is what brought about the creation of Old Mutual Limited. The organization is a pan-African insurance, investment, savings, and banking group that was first founded by John Fairbairn in South Africa some 176 years ago.
Old Mutual Limited has grown in leaps and bounds over the years with branches flung all across South Africa and the world in general. The company has more than 30,000 employees and operates in fourteen countries across two regions. In Africa, they operate in South Africa, Tanzania, Namibia, Nigeria, Botswana, eSwatini, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Kenya, Ghana, Uganda, Rwanda, and South Sudan. It is listed on the Johannesburg, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Namibia Stock Exchanges. The company also has a presence in Asia (China).
Old Mutual Limited Has Been In Operation For Close To Two Centuries
Old Mutual Limited was founded as a mutual insurance company in the year 1845 by a Scotsman named John Fairbairn in South Africa. Fairbairn alongside prominent public figures like Saul Solomon and some others came together to start the company. At inception, it was named The Mutual Life Assurance Society of the Cape of Good Hope but in 1885, it was changed to The South Africa Mutual Life Assurance Society before it became Old Mutual Limited.
For an institution that has outlived its founders and has seen hundreds of decades, Old Mutual Limited has gone through a lot of changes in terms of business management and structure. The only thing that is certain is the Assurance of delivering quality service to their customers.
In the year 2018, it was demutualized and listed on other stock exchanges including the London Stock Exchange. At around that time, a new strategy was introduced that entailed the separation of its four businesses – Old Mutual Emerging Markets, UK-based Old Mutual Wealth, Nedbank, and Boston-based Old Mutual Asset Management (OMAM) – into standalone entities. The new strategy introduced led to the Quilter PLC which was formerly known as Old Mutual Wealth.
Today, the business is based in South Africa. It provides supports bursaries and sponsorship at South African Universities. It is one of the Top 10 strongest brands globally. They offer a wide range of financial services in South Africa, which includes investment, asset management, life assurance, loans, and risk products.
Old Mutual Limited is a financial institution with the purpose to help their customers achieve their financial goals, provide a beautiful future for themselves and their families through investment, and also a sustainable future for Old Mutual Limited in business. They offer personal loans and debt consolidation loans to meet the needs of their customers. They do all these through Old Mutual Finance which is a licensed financial service and registered credit provider.
Old Mutual Limited’s Head Office Is Located In South Africa
This institution recognizes that the only constant thing is change, especially when it is positive. They also recognize the need to have a strong solid root in the place where it all started. Since 1956, their head office has been located at Mutualpark in Pinelands which had the largest office block in the southern hemisphere at that time.

Old Mutual Funeral Cover Is One Way Of Meeting Their Customers Needs
Ensuring that people are taken care of after their death is the reason the Funeral Cover is in place. It caters to the expenses incurred during the funeral ceremony of any of their clients. The Funeral Cover is generated when a client pays a monthly amount while he or she was alive, and then the accumulated sum is given to the family so they can focus their attention on things that are more important than thinking of how to get money for the funeral.
Amazingly, there are affordable funeral covers for people who earn low or aren’t interested in elaborate funeral arrangements after their death. And, if an issue occurs with the funeral cover, the family can call 0860506070 for complaints.
