Old Mutual

Old Mutual Limited is a pan-African investment, savings, insurance, and banking group. It is listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Botswana Stock Exchanges. It was founded in South Africa by John Fairbairn in 1845 and was demutualised and listed on the London Stock Exchange and other stock exchanges in 1999. It introduced a new strategy, called 'managed separation', that entailed the separation of its four businesses - Old Mutual Emerging Markets, Nedbank, UK-based Old Mutual Wealth and Boston-based Old Mutual Asset Management (OMAM) - into standalone entities in 2018. This led to the demerger of Quilter plc and the unbundling of its shareholding in NedBank. The business, which is now largely based in South Africa, provides sponsorship and supports bursaries at South African universities.
