About Us



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.

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.  Note that the beneficiary fund boards of trustees appoint independent asset managers and independent asset consultants.
