1995: FMI pioneered income protection for the self-employed, at a time when the industry offered it only to professionals
2016: We remain committed to creating products that protect you and your family from the risk of not being able to earn an income. For more than 21 years we are proud to have supported our clients as they live out their plans and dreams, because behind every claim is a real person with a family and a business. It’s their stories that inspire us to keep improv
We are Proudly Bidvest, and a division of Bidvest Life
FMI is now part of the broader Bidvest Group Limited, one of the largest companies on the JSE. This allows us to take advantage of the economic efficiencies and opportunities that come with being part of a large group, especially one like Bidvest, while still retaining our entrepreneurial spirit that we hold at FMI.
As of March 2017, we will have our own Life Insurance license through Bidvest Life. This means that we’re not only Proudly Bidvest and a member of the vast Bidvest family, but are also a Division of Bidvest Life Limited. Prior to Bidvest Life, FMI operated off the Guardrisk Life Insurance license, and our clients that have taken policies with us before March 2017 will continue to have their policies insured by Guardrisk Life.
Reinsurance Group America (RGA)
RGA is our preferred reinsurance partner. With life reinsurance in force of 3 trillion dollars globally, our clients take comfort in knowing that our claims paying ability is also backed by the financial strength of a global reinsurance business.
The best of both worlds
This combination ensures you receive personal service and a cutting edge product, whilst feeling safe in the knowledge that we will always have the financial strength to pay your claims.
