Igniting the Economy!

September 2007


Background information

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

  • In 1999, when we demutualised, we were able to pass on free shares to all who held Old Mutual policies. Not all of these shares have been claimed, and with the closure of the Unclaimed Shares Trust (UST), the funds arising will enable us to expand our efforts to continue transforming the South African economy.

  • In designing the activities of Masisizane, we have sought to address the challenges that we as a country face, and to support government’s Accelerated Shared Growth Initiative of South Africa (AsgiSA).


Background information1

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

  • Masisizane is a Section 21 (non-profit) organisation that has been created to coordinate the implementation of several initiatives.  

  • In summary, the initiatives are: 

  • The facilitation of the development of women-owned micro, small and medium-sized enterprises.

  • Financial education that aims to help South Africans improve their financial discipline and knowledge.


Background information2

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

  • The ILima Trust, which aims to develop capacity and skills within the public service, particularly at municipal level, to facilitate improved service delivery to communities across South Africa.
