You might know us as part of Momentum Metropolitan Life Limited, a licensed life insurer and an authorised financial services (FSP44673) and registered credit provider (NCRCP173).
We were established in 1897 in Paarl in the Western Cape as African Homes Trust – a syndicate formed to provide finance to those who could not afford to buy their own homes. And while our name has changed and we’ve grown organically and through mergers, our mission remains the same – to help South Africans reach their financial goals, in good times and bad.
We might be one of the biggest financial services companies in South Africa, but we will always put our clients first and treat them with respect. And we are proud to have remained at the top of the South African Customer Satisfaction Index (SAcsi) for a number of consecutive years.
We believe that financial literacy paired with expert advice enables you to make good decisions about your money. To help you achieve this, we have over 140 branches throughout South Africa as well as centres of service in Namibia, Botswana, Kenya, Ghana, Lesotho and eSwatini.
Momentum and Metropolitan merged in December 2010 to form Momentum Metropolitan Life Limited. The merger has positioned Momentum Metropolitan Life Limited as the third largest life insurer in South Africa.
