Background of FirstRand

  • First Rand Limited is the holding company – also known as the FirstRand Group – of the First Rand Bank. The group provides financial services to the South African market with extended roots in various African countries. FirstRand was proudly founded two decades ago, in 1998 and is listed on the JSE (Johannesburg Stock Excahnge) and the Namibia Stock Exchange. The group headquarters can be found in Johannesburg, South Africa.

  • The FirstRand group’s DNA actually stretches back as far as the 1970s, as an investment bank. Although the group, in its current form, was established in the late 90s, the company originated from a merger between the financial services interests between Anglo American
    Corporation of South Africa Limited (currently known as Anglo American plc) and RMB Holdings (RMBH). The merger was in order to achieve a unified financial services grouping.

  • FirstRand deliver services and attain goals through its impressive portfolio of leading financial franchises. These franchises are: Rand Merchant Bank (RMB), their corporate investment bank; First National Bank (FNB), one of the members of the four biggest South African retail and commercial banks; WesBank an instalment finance provider; and Ashburton Investments, who act as the FirstRand group’s asset management business.

The bank’s rise in popularity has seen an immensely positive rise in the fortunes of FirstRand Limited. FNB’s success can be seen clearly from FirstRand’s long term vision to be South Africa’s financial services pf choice, through the creation of long-term franchise value and by delivering superior and sustainable economic returns to the group’s shareholders. Through this intelligent and business savvy approach that FirstRand has invested into its financial franchises, the company has been able to pave a way to rich success.
