Education, information sharing and skills development are key aspects of successful transformation. In addition Old Mutual is committed to empowering South African's who were excluded from the economic arena by the inequities of the past. With this in mind, we sponsor a number of initiatives that promote learning, growth and excellence.

The Old Mutual and Nedbank Budget Speech Competition

The Old Mutual and Nedbank Budget Speech Competition is an annual initiative through which Nedbank and Old Mutual seek to nurture and invest in the next generation of economists, decision makers and thinkers. Generous cash prizes are awarded for the three top essays in the postgraduate and undergraduate categories.
