In the 173 years that Old Mutual has been part of Africa’s financial fabric, it has seen many changes. The latest took place on 26 June this year when Old Mutual Limited had its primary listing on the JSE, underpinning its trust in African financial markets.

The day was another milestone in Old Mutual’s history and marked the end of a three-year process to divide the group into four entities, each with its own identity and ambit. Moving away from an umbrella group structure will unlock shareholder value and, most importantly, create a business with a strong strategic focus on Africa.

A few years ago we predicted that the disability insurance industry was headed for major change. Last year we saw it borne out by the results of Old Mutual Corporate's Disability Monitor: the frequency and nature of claims are changing.

Around the world, from the streets of Brazil to the city squares of Europe, from campuses in South Africa to voting booths in the United Kingdom, there is a growing feeling that the voice of the common man is not being heard.

08 November 2017: While globalisation has raised levels of prosperity, the distribution of this new wealth remains largely unequal. A result of this mounting imbalance in wealth and power has been a growing frustration that the voices of ordinary citizens are not being heard, opening the door for populist political and economic rhetoric that promises social reform.
