As a brand that turns service excellence into action, Metropolitan strives to continuously bring its services closer to its clients. On Tuesday, 19 November 2019, Metropolitan launched its newly relocated Somerset West branch at the Habitat Centre.

Metropolitan Regional Manager, Daniel Nienaber, says the newly located branch is Metropolitan’s way of showing just how committed it is to its clients. “We constantly strive to bring our services closer to our clients, because we understand how busy life gets. This branch will make it easier for them to access our services quickly, easily and conveniently.”

The Habitat Centre, which is located just off the N2, was carefully chosen for its ease of access. “In addition to being highly visible, our new location means we can expand the number of services and products we offer our clients to help them achieve their financial life goals,” adds Nienaber.

The new, fully equipped branch has 12 staff members. Here, clients have access to services and products such as funeral and retirement policies, life and dread disease cover, as well as savings plans for their children’s education. They can also speak to one of the five dedicated financial advisers on site daily.

“We are excited to accompany the residents of Somerset West on their financial journeys, to deliver perfect-fit solutions for them and form relationships that last a lifetime. What matters to our clients, matters to us,” concludes Nienaber.
