More than just a bank

Our history

Sasfin was established in 1951 as a textile trading business. This business was converted into a finance business in the 1960s. Sasfin listed as a trade and equipment financier on the JSE in 1987. Following the listing, Sasfin established SASP in 1991 - the oldest standing securitisation vehicle in South Africa. Following a number of small acquisitions and strong organic growth, Sasfin obtained a banking license in 1999. In 2000 Sasfin acquired Frankel Pollak Securities, which today forms the base of Sasfin Wealth. Sasfin continued to grow both organically and via further acquisitions and today comprises Sasfin Bank, Sasfin Wealth and Sasfin Capital. The Group offers a wide range of financial services and products to entrepreneurs and investors.
