The Management of BEIGE, a Financial Services Provider, was recently hosted by Old Mutual in their Cape Town corporate office (Mutual Park) in South Africa, as part of events geared toward forging closer ties. The event was also to explore stronger business partnerships between the two firms.
The visit, which happens to be the second since 2015, also served as a learning tour for some of the BEIGE staff. Led by its Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mr. Mike Nyinaku, the BEIGE team were previously hosted in Old Mutual’s Johannesburg office during the 2015 visit.
Old Mutual Africa’s Head of Distribution and Strategic Partnerships, Gerald Randall, said: “It was a great pleasure to host the team again”. He also commended BEIGE for building a formidable and ambitious business, and encouraging practical learning for staff even beyond the shores of Ghana. Mr. Randall said the 175-year-old financial services firm is open to entering into strategic partnerships with BEIGE.
Mr. Nyinaku explained that an important part of the company’s leadership development activities has been conducting corporate exchanges and training tours to leading financial services firms since 2012. He added that, “In 2015, when our team was hosted at Old Mutual, we were also hosted at Bidvest Bank on another training tour. Similarly, in October 2013 our institution hosted a team of Investment Bankers from the major banks in South Africa on an International Executive Development Programme organised under the auspices of BANKSETA”.
In the same vein, as part of this transnational educational tour, the BEIGE Team which consisted of two board members, the CEO and ten (10) other Middle Management staff were also hosted at Momentum MMI Holdings in Johannesburg.
Mr. Nyinaku, during his interactions with the team at Old Mutual & Momentum MMI Holdings, shared recent milestones chalked up by BEIGE and its current status as a reputable financial services provider in the country. He explained that the key objective of BEIGE in the medium-term is to consolidate and expand its share of the market in the informal sector.
He expressed his appreciation for the reception accorded the team at Old Mutual and Momentum MMI Holdings.
