Company Overview

NMG Benefits provides consulting, actuarial and administration expertise in the healthcare and retirement fund environments, and this extends to financial planning for individuals. This allows NMG to provide an end-to-end solution across the healthcare, retirement fund and financial planning needs of employers and their employees.

We urge our clients to look at their employee benefits through an actuarial lens. Our goal is to ensure that the “common contract” between employer and employee – which sets out expectations of performance - is underpinned by informed policies that encourage productivity, loyalty, and an engaged employee but at the same time protect the future financial security of institutions that employ people.

At NMG, the leadership and staff realise that we have been placed in a position of privilege and trust to manage the well-being of our client’s financial futures. We are proud that more than 50 blue chip South African companies such as Aveng, Anglo American, Primedia, Pick n Pay, JP Morgan, and Business Connexion trust our advice and implement our recommendations.
