Who we are

In 1988 Risk Benefit Solutions (RBS) started out as a small proprietorship. A little over 20 years on – it’s now one of the largest fully fledged financial services advisory firms in southern Africa. Our services cover a broad spectrum of needs including Insurance Broking, Risk Management, Corporate Risk Advisors, Employee Benefit Administrators and Consultants, and Health and Wealth management.

Culture & Values

Our culture is characterised by a strong desire for innovation and problem solving with a flair for entrepreneurship. It’s an inspiring ethos that forms the heartbeat of our business and keeps us firmly on track. But our hard-working attitude aside, we make sure it’s only the work we take seriously - never ourselves.

RBS has since evolved into one of the largest independent financial services companies in South Africa, employing over 210 people.
