Metropolitan Brings Financial Services Closer to Carletonville Residents

11 October 2018Metropolitan

On Friday, the 5th of October 2018, Metropolitan launched a brand new branch in the Gateway Mall in Carletonville, giving residents and those from the surrounding areas convenient access to financial services.

Metropolitan Key Accounts Manager, Thabo Mapisa, shares that previously, clients had to travel all the way from the Carletonville area to Soweto or the Johannesburg CBD to access the personalised solutions and advice offered by Metropolitan. “Now, with a branch at their local shopping centre, we are bringing our services closer to our clients - helping them plan for and achieve their financial life goals.”


At the new, fully equipped branch, clients can attain solutions such as retirement and funeral policies, life and dread disease cover, as well as savings plans for their children’s education. They can also make changes to their policies and surrender or take loans against them. Plus, they can claim and see their financial advisers in a more convenient location.


By opening this branch, Metropolitan has created employment opportunities for 16 financial advisers and two branch managers who will be looking after clients in the area.


“We look forward to working with the residents of Carletonville and its surrounds, being by their sides as they walk their life’s journey – listening to them and helping them plan for and achieve what really matters to them,” concludes Mapisa.
