About Us



Fairheads Benefit Services (Pty) Ltd is Southern Africa’s leading independent administrator for products and services in the retirement fund and fiduciary industries. We administer:

  • beneficiary funds and umbrella trusts which manage monies on behalf of mainly minor dependants of deceased retirement fund members. These products accept approved death benefits for retirement funds as well as other employee and life-cover benefits for employer companies (unapproved benefits);
  •  a legacy umbrella trust product that can accept funds inter alia from testamentary bequests and the Road Accident Fund;
  • unclaimed benefit funds which trace, verify and pay out members on behalf of retirement funds; and
  • pension-backed home loans where we have partnered with retirement funds to provide loans directly to its members.

Our head office is in Cape Town and we have walk-in client service centres in Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg and Sandton.

Fairheads Benefit Services is a section 13B licensed administrator and an authorised service provider in terms of FAIS legislation.

In 2015 Fairheads Benefit Services entered into a B-BBEE transaction with Vunani Limited, a listed, black-owned financial services group, in terms of which Vunani has a majority shareholding in Fairheads Benefit Services.

Our heritage

Over the past 30 years, Fairheads Benefit Services has evolved from the Fairheads Trust Group which was founded in 1925. Fairheads has a tradition of highly personalised service based on genuine trusteeship, excellent administration and a conservative tailored approach to investment management.
