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. Within a strongly client-centric model, we administer:

  • beneficiary funds and umbrella trusts which manage lump sum death benefits paid at the discretion of boards of trustees on behalf of dependants of deceased retirement fund members. These products accept Section 37C 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 financial payouts from inter alia testamentary bequests, the Road Accident Fund, life insurance and medical malpractice; 
  • unclaimed benefit funds focused on tracing, verifying and paying out unclaimed benefits to members on behalf of retirement funds; and
  • pension-backed home loans where we have partnered with retirement funds to provide loans directly to their members.

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

Fairheads’ parent company is Black-owned financial services group, Vunani Limited which has a majority share.
