Business Development Consultant – Nedbank Trust, Bloemfontein



As a leading fiduciary service provider our clients know that they can count on us to provide them with the best means to continue their legacy.  Apart from being renowned for our deceased estate and trust administration, will structuring and estate planning, at Nedgroup Trust we also pride ourselves on the personal relationships that we establish with all our clients.  That’s because for us, “TRUST” is not just a fiduciary term, ultimately, it’s what long-term relationships and legacies are based upon.

Nedgroup Trust Limited came about in its present form as a result of the merger of Syfrets Trust Ltd, Old Mutual Trust Ltd and The Board of Executors in January 2003. The Company can however trace its history back through many mergers and acquisitions to 1834 when The South African Association for the Administration and Settlement of Estates was founded, followed shortly thereafter by The Board of Executors in 1838, both in Cape Town.

Today the Company is represented in all major centres around the country and is a part of the Nedbank/Old Mutual Group. The Company was a founder member of The Fiduciary Institute of Southern Africa (FISA) and subscribes to its Code of Conduct.
