Specialist advice you can count on
We are an independent actuarial firm. Our firm has been delivering expert advice and actuarial reports to enable estates to settle maintenance obligations. Unlike other actuarial firms our focus has always been specifically on claims against estates – we are the leading experts in this field in South Africa.
We have been supplying practical solutions for over 35 years to executors, attorneys and spouses who have had to settle or claim maintenance from estates.
These calculations are a practical science. In South Africa claims for minors are not regulated by law, but is rather based on common law principles.
The Maintenance of Surviving Spouses Act 27 of 1990, regulates claims for surviving spouses, but the Act is low on guidance and detail as to how these claims are to be calculated. Hence professional judgement is paramount in these calculations.
Our experience in this field of providing guidance to more than a thousand deceased estates makes us the premier specialists in South Africa in this field. We are in the ideal position to calculate and motivate a fair claim.
Our reports are highly regarded by the major players in the industry, including many of the masters of the high courts in South Africa.
Our clients represent a broad range of the professional executors and attorneys in South Africa, as well as individual clients who require assistance in formulating their claims.
We believe our success is about so much more than simply helping providing actuarial advice and reports. It’s about building genuine relationships, based on trust and personal support.
