What is Franchising?

Franchising leverages the strength and trust of big, established brands to provide credibility and support to small businesses. A key benefit is that a small company is seen to be backed by a major brand, providing customers with the peace of mind that the business is credible, its products are sound and the service will meet certain standards.

Through our franchise partnership you will be able to operate under the Old Mutual licence. This means that we help you meet the legal and regulatory requirements of your business, while providing you with support that comes with being associated with a well-established and reputable brand.

You will be able to offer solutions that meet customers’ evolving needs and will receive ongoing product and operational training and support. With over 175 years of experience and a people-centred business approach, Old Mutual Mass and Foundation Cluster has come to understand customer’s needs and have developed products specifically to meet the changing needs of customers in the mass market.

We are dedicated to providing the best financial education and advice. Not only do we offer products that help customers reach their goals and dreams; but we also offer financial education because we are passionate about transforming their future.
