About Momentum Metropolitan

Momentum Metropolitan is a leading insurance-based financial services company listed on the South African stock exchange, the JSE. Created in December 2010 from the merger of Metropolitan Holdings and the Momentum Group, Momentum Metropolitan is one of the largest insurers in South Africa doing business in 15 countries outside South Africa. MMI also opened a liaison office in India in 2011, tasked with exploring business opportunities in the region.

The core businesses of Momentum Metropolitan are long and short-term insurance, asset management, savings, investment, healthcare administration and employee benefits. Product solutions are provided to all market segments through the well established Momentum and Metropolitan brands. Prior to the merger of Metropolitan and Momentum, both of these companies maintained a significant presence in the Southern African financial services landscape.

Metropolitan, with over a 110 year history, is considered a pioneer of empowerment in the financial services sector. It was the first company on the JSE to conclude an empowerment transaction – which it did in 1993 with New Africa Investments Limited (NAIL), an empowerment consortium. Metropolitan is also focusing its business on the emerging market, providing financial services and products to a large number of Africa’s people.
