Investing In Transformation

Developing and transforming South Africa for over 20 years

Investing in transformation is at the heart of our business, investment  and organisational strategies.

Investing in the transformation of South Africa

At Futuregrowth we know that transforming South Africa is about a lot more than scorecards and tick boxes and so when considering what is required for transformation we include the impact our business and investments have on the broader environment in which we operate.

Our two focus areas are:

1. Internal transformation: the transformation of our business to reflect the racial and gender diversity of our country.

2. External transformation: the impact that our business and investments have on our clients, communities, the investment industry, capital markets and the economy as a whole. This includes taking our role as responsible investor seriously to our many products dedicated to the development and empowerment of South Africa and its people.

Graduate Acceleration Programme 
Learnership (GAP) & TSIBA

We recognise the need to encourage skills transfer which best takes place within the workplace. We therefore participate in the Old Mutual GAP and TSiBA bursary programmes. Both of these programmes offer opportunities to students to further their careers within the financial services industry.

If you're interested in applying for a GAP learnership, click here to find out more about the programme and how to apply.

"We have been working extremely hard on all aspects of the scorecard to make sure that we contribute to the achievement of an equitable society in this country."

Being a Responsible Investor

As fiduciaries representing investors’ interests we take our role of responsible investor very seriously. Regulation 28 of the Pension Funds Act requires pension funds to consider issues that could materially affect long-term performance, including environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. This includes integrating non-financial analysis into our investment process, engaging with investee companies on matters of ESG and our range of development funds that makes a positive impact in society and the broader environment.

Caring for communities

Futuregrowth allocates 1% of its after tax profits to Corporate Social Investment (CSI). Our key focus areas of support fall within the three broad CSI categories of social development, health and education.

During 2019 we funded 21 projects across all three CSI categories.
