About Us

Built on over one hundred years of history

Indwe Risk Services first came into existence in 2006, the product of a merger between Thebe Risk Services and Prestasi Brokers, both of which had a formidable history in insurance.

Our excellent service, innovative products and timeless values are borne from decades of experience garnered by South Africa's insurance leaders and trailblazers.

Indwe is an independent broker and deals with all registered and approved insurers in South Africa.

Indwe is the isiXhosa and isiZulu name for South Africa's national bird, the Blue Crane.

Indwe Risk Services is 100% owned by Indwe Broker Holdings Ltd, making it possible for our partners to regulate and advance transformation within Indwe. One of our primary corporate objectives is to ensure that, over time, our company achieves equal representation of men and women across all management levels. Empowered procurement is also a priority within Indwe, but our primary focus remains on the quality of the service delivery.

In our bid to create a more empowered society, we are committed to assisting the upliftment of the communities in which we operate through focused corporate social investment programmes. Each of our branches have adopted a cause of their own, taking charities and important causes under their wings.

As an accredited learning provider, Indwe invests millions of rands in FAIS accreditation training for all employees and makes loans available for those wishing to study further. Indwe also offers a 12-month internship programme in which a specially selected group of graduates receive on-the-job training including technical product training, sales, finance and life skills as well as practical work experience.


Our empowerment philosophy is to create a society in which each individual has the skills, resources and opportunities to give his best in building a prosperous South Africa.

We strive to ensure an equitable working environment that supports the growth and advancement of everyone regardless of race, sex, religion, disability or political opinion.
