Black Economic Empowerment

Old Mutual maintains level 2 B-BBEE status

Old Mutual has achieved level 2 status for the fifth consecutive year with a Broad-Based Black Economic (B-BBEE) score of 89.17.

As a responsible business, Old Mutual's business strategy is closely aligned to the National Development Plan (NDP). Old Mutual takes the role of facilitating the economic inclusion of more South Africans and helping build a capable state very seriously.

The Old Mutual empowerment BEE deal was concluded in 2005 and involved three separate but inter-dependent transactions – one for each of its South African businesses (Old Mutual South Africa, Nedcor and Mutual & Federal).

The vision of the BEE deal was to bridge the barrier of exclusivity, and expand ownership of Old Mutual to include all who were previously unable, or at a disadvantage, to participate in ownership of large companies. The BEE deal exceeded all the prescribed minimum standards of the then Financial Charter for the sector and was already aimed at reaching a broad base of beneficiaries.

Its construction ensured that the ownership of Old Mutual benefited the following partners, whom we collectively embrace as Black Business Partners:


  • WIPHOLD Consortium
  • BRIMSTONE Consortium

Communities and Distributors

  • The Black Distributors Trust
  • The Education Trust


  • Management Plan
  • Broad based scheme

Our Black Business Partners continue to contribute to our Transformation journey. Our Business partners are active members of our Boards, Transformation Committee, among other structures through which they actively contribute to Old Mutual’s business and corporate citizenship activities and ensure that we deliver on our commitment and promise to build a transformed society on a commercially sustainable basis.
