Fairsure has been providing small-to-medium companies with financial services for over 40 years.
Fairsure was founded in 1979 as a business focussed on providing independent and cost-effective solutions and services in all facets of employee benefits. Since then, our service offering has widened, and now incorporates other elements of the financial services value-chain.
We are a strong team of passionate individuals with varied expertise and experience in bespoke financial services, but a shared vision and set of values.
We do what’s right, even when no one is watching.
We own our achievements, and tackle challenges head on.
We are each always looking for opportunities to grow and improve – internally and externally.
We help each other achieve their goals – because every victory benefits us all.
We hold ourselves to the highest standards in everything we do.
Since our doors opened, Fairsure has been an owner-managed enterprise. This, along with our size and organisational structure, makes it possible for us to form real relationships with our clients.
When entrusted with a client’s business, we immediately make it our business to understand their needs, as well as their employees’ needs. This in turn allows us to offer a unique flexibility when responding to a world that is constantly changing, and to our clients’ consequently changing needs.
Our aim is to be a trusted partner and invaluable service provider, doing everything we can to ensure that clients and members get the most out of their financial solutions. We are member- and client-centric in everything we do and always aim to offer competitive rates and highly personalised service.
Our philosophy of innovation and self-empowerment inspires leadership among our staff. This professional cohesion deepens our team’s commitment and sense of ownership, as each employee shares responsibility for our collective success.
Fairsure has a level 1 B-BBEE certificate and is registered with the financial services board. You can be assured that we are ethically managed according to prudent risk parameters, in compliance with generally accepted corporate practices.
