THE HOLLARD INSURANCE GROUP

The Hollard Insurance Group is South Africa’s largest privately-owned insurance group, established in 1980.

Although they’ve only been around for just over 30 years, the roots of the company go way back into the late 1950s and early 1960s. It was then that an insurance broker, Robert Enthoven, realised that insurance companies were not adequately meeting the needs of their corporate customers. He had an idea to start an insurance company that formed deep and long-term partnerships with corporate customers in a way that allowed them to share in the fruits of improved risk management. Out of this spirit of true partnership the Hollard Insurance Company was born.

Since the early days, Hollard has gone from strength to strength, but they’ve never forgotten our roots – long term, genuine and mutually beneficial partnerships form the core of everything that they do as an insurance group today.

INCE COMMUNICATIONS

We’re a company with a thirst for adventure and a story of entrepreneurship and adaptation. We may have started out as a print business over 100 years ago, but as the market has changed, we evolved into so much more than that.

Our ability to adapt and our willingness to take a leap of faith means we’re able to deliver investor communications that rise above the rest.

TODAY, WE’RE AN INVESTOR MARKETING AGENCY USING THE POWER OF DIGITAL TO DELIVER THE RIGHT MESSAGE TO THE RIGHT PEOPLE AT THE RIGHT TIME.

With our strategic advisory and production services, we help corporate clients meet their regulatory disclosure requirements and empower their shareholders with knowledge – about how the company has performed in the past, and where it will go in the future. We also equip investors with the tools they need to connect with like-minded people and the information they need to make more informed investment decisions.

We will do whatever it takes to deliver the right message to the right people at the right time in order to co-create an interconnected community of informed contributors and, subsequently, a more inclusive investment ecosystem.

ABOUT THE CAVERN RESORT AND SPA

The Cavern Resort was founded by Ruth and Bill Carte in 1941 and is currently run by Megan, her husband Hilton and her sister Lesley. They are the third generation of Carte’s to take over the helm and are passionate not only about the resort but also about uplifting and improving the education and livelihood of the Amazizi community. It is a beautiful family style resort situated beneath the massive sandstone cliffs at the foot of the Drakensberg and one of the few resorts where you can step out of your room and be 2,000m above sea level on one of the highest peaks within 2hrs. Set within the old gum trees against a backdrop of the Drakensburg and surrounded by lush gardens, a swimming pool and a lawn from which you can see the valley below and the peaks in the distance, it is a truly magical place. Daily walks are offered and children are kept busy with horse rides, tennis, games and countless daily activities. Adults are able to rejuvenate in the Forest Spa or try their hand at bowls after tea and before an aperitif in “The Cave Bar” where often a fire roars. Most guests are return customers many of whom first came as little ones with their parents and now come back year after year with their own kids and those same grandparents to walk to hills, nourish the soul and restore the body. 

THE ROYAL DRAKENSBERG PRIMARY SCHOOL

Founded in 2007 in a converted roofless sandstone barn, The Royal Drakensberg Primary School serves the Amazizi community providing primary school education to underprivileged children. Six qualified teachers and a headmistress ensure that the education is of the highest standard enabling children to go on to schools further afield. The Carte family believes that a quality education is key to ensuring that children will be positive and productive contributors to South African society. If parents and teachers in the area can see an example of what is possible, they too may strive to attain higher standards for themselves and their children. Only by example can we help to raise awareness and give these children an equal opportunity to succeed in life.
