Fairheads Benefit Services (Pty) Ltd is Southern Africa’s leading independent service provider of beneficiary funds and umbrella trusts for retirement funds. We administer approved death benefits for retirement funds; we also administer other employee and life-cover benefits for employer companies (unapproved benefits). Our head office is in Cape Town and we have walk-in service centres in 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.
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. Note that the beneficiary fund boards of trustees appoint independent asset managers and independent asset consultants.
