Origin Financial is the result of a combined dream of four financial services businesses, merging to become a single entity business with a common goal. Over time, our goal became more clearly defined in our role as a services company, and our approach had been carefully honed to centre around the specific needs of our clients. As our clients’ needs have developed, our fields of expertise have also expanded to accommodate the needs of our clients. Mergers with and acquisitions of various specialists in the financial industry have enabled us to comply with intricate needs of our clients.

Origin’s slogan proclaims that we are COMMITTED TO YOU. Our approach to business is therefore focused on you, our client. Your needs, your goals, your voice and your well-being will determine our actions, tempo and direction of service to you. Our qualified staff members are therefore carefully trained and processes cleverly designed to enforce our philosophy of being COMMITTED TO YOU.


At Origin, we focus on the most important aspect in financial services: you, the client. We assess each client’s lifestyle and needs to structure an integrated and tailored financial plan. We want to be the origin of your financial independence. When did the financial services industry become all about mountains of paperwork and faceless interactions? When did it stop being about the client and more about fitting everyone into one-size-fits-all boxes?

At Origin, we’re committed to going back to the source. Back to you. We start by assessing your unique situation and needs before working with each other and you in forming an integrated, customised financial plan. We believe in following a structured methodology that provides a step-by-step guide to what you need, what we can provide, how we are going to combine this into a workable solution and plan, and finally, how we are going to monitor it and manage it over the long-term to maximize your results. It’s not a simple goal, but one we’re absolutely committed to: we want to be the origin of your financial independence.

Practically speaking… In order for us to identify your possible risk exposures, we will perform a thorough needs analysis.
Once we have identified the possible risks, we can propose adequate solutions to insure against them. Based on our findings,
we will discuss and agree on the plan and policies we put in place to protect you and your assets and build financial independence and wealth.

We will also agree to meet on a regular basis to review the safeguards in place, and after advice, implement whatever decisions have been made jointly.



HuisJabes in Cape Town is a rehabilitation centre that provides a temporary home to female victims who have suffered physical and emotional abuse. The centre provides meals, shelter, medical care, counselling and career guidance to empower these women and give them and their children a chance at a better future. Since its establishment in 2008, HuisJabes has helped more than 400 women and children start the process of recovery and rehabilitation. Origin is committed to our continued fundraising efforts in aid of HuisJabes.

This year Origin and Mst Group partnered with SALT to make a change in the community. We provided food and stationary parcels to students in need. This will feed over 120 people for a week, providing food security to vulnerable families.


Social investment lies at the heart of Origin Financial, assisting our society wherever we can. The culinary explorations of the learners at Florida Secondary School were next on our plate. We made a generous donation towards their 2019 Food Fair, making sure the event could burst with flavour. Letter from principal.


We strive to build a company we can be proud of. One that listens before giving advice, and providing a customised solution that will fit each individual client. We want to offer real wisdom and workable solutions that takes financial services to the next level. Our clients must be made to feel part of the Origin family and, as such, we realise that the small things we do amount to big things in life. The team at Origin Financial is truly different – we see our clients as part of the family. There are no hidden agendas, no sales pitches, just good, honest advice.
