The Occupational Pension and Provident Fund schemes administered by Metropolitan Pensions are also well managed by competent boards of Trustees that are well constituted with member-nominated members as well as independent members.

In recent times when the turmoil in the banking sector has put the spotlight on corporate governance, it is refreshing to identify a corporate trustee with sound corporate governance practice.

Coming after the Top Transparent Pension Corporate Trustee award we won in 2017, it is a corroboration of our superior corporate governance credentials. We recognise that to have an enjoyable retirement with income security, the choice of a corporate trustee with sound corporate governance is crucial. Our vision therefore is to continue “To be the preferred Lifetime Financial Wellness partner with a reputation for Innovation and Trustworthiness”.

We leverage on the Metropolitan brand which has been endorsed by over 15 million clients across Africa and beyond. Metropolitan has been in the business of providing financial solutions for over 118 years with core businesses in long and short-term insurance, asset management, savings, investment, healthcare administration, health risk management, employee benefits and rewards programs amongst others.
