Fairheads Umbrella Beneficiary Fund or Trust



At Fairheads we have developed two funds, Fairheads Umbrella Beneficiary Fund and The Fairheads Umbrella Trust*), to manage monies on behalf of minor dependants of deceased retirement fund members. Both these funds allow educational, medical and welfare benefits to be distributed to dependants in a tax-effective manner.

With our emphasis on flexibility and a tailored approach to income requirements and capital needs, it is no wonder that these two funds have drawn a membership of more than 25 000 since their inception. Furthermore,  Fairheads Umbrella Beneficiary Fund is one of only two beneficiary funds with more than R1 billion in assets under management.
