2019 Sponsor Profiles


Alexander Forbes is a market-leading provider of integrated retirement and investment solutions as well as holistic wealth management.

For 84 years our brand has been synonymous with financial expertise and innovation. We have built our premium brand through an in-depth understanding of the employee benefit and investment industry. Offering pioneering solutions has made us a trusted adviser and partner of choice.

Our people are dedicated to delivering outstanding employee benefit and investment solutions as well as administrative services for institutional clients while securing the financial well-being of individual clients. In March 2019 we announced a revised strategy that refocuses the business on providing integrated retirement solutions and holistic wealth management based on best advice for clients. This followed a review to ensure continued relevance in our core markets, assess growth opportunities and unlock the value of the company.

We create value for our clients by ensuring they are at the centre of everything we do. We provide advice, products and solutions that meet the needs of our clients through our new operating model. We are the largest administrator of retirement funds, multi-manager and healthcare consultancy in South Africa.
