Old Mutual, building better futures for all stakeholders everyday!

12 December 2019 Old Mutual

As a business that has been building better futures for our stakeholders on the continent for almost 175 years, Old Mutual is committed more now than ever before to help create the Africa we all deserve. Our commitment to responsible investment includes:

• R117 billion towards driving inclusive and sustainable economies
• R1.3 billion towards access to quality education
• R11.9 billion towards affordable housing
• R34.5 billion towards clean energy projects across the continent
• R500 million towards developing small and black owned businesses

These investments are a reminder to all our stakeholders of the scope of Africa’s potential and Old Mutual’s role in helping to achieve it. There are some amazing stories across the continent of people doing great things everyday and as Old Mutual, we’re privileged to have been able to play a part in that.

Stories such as the resolute stand taken by women (and men) against the epidemic of gender based violence, Caster Semenya’s continued triumph’s in the face of adversity as well as the Springboks bringing home the William Webb Ellis trophy for the third time, not forgetting our very own, African child, Zozibini Tunzi bringing home the Ms Universe crown. We couldn’t be prouder of every single person that has achieved their greatness this year.

In Africa, toughness is part of our DNA and good hope defines the way we persevere in the face of adversity. Setbacks don’t knock us down. We learn from them and then inevitably we bounce back, wiser and stronger than before.

As Africans, we are inspired and motivated by people who go beyond what was thought possible to do great and awesome things.

No, the true numbers are not reflected. Almost a quarter of South Africans may already have been infected with Covid-19
It’s too soon to tell. We will likely get a second wave with stringent lockdown regulations in place again
Yes, South Africa bought enough time to make a significant difference. We saved lives and have passed our peak. The worst is over
