Company Origin and Key Milestones

Covision Group has had a long and interesting history. Covision Funeral Home was established in 1980 in the Free State province of South Africa. Initially the group traded under the name of Qwaqwa Funerals, which was later changed to SA Funeral Home. Our 35 years of experience in arranging exceptional funerals, and our reputation for providing high-quality and dignified services, have made us a household name in the funeral industry in South Africa.

With our sights set on expansion, we became the first (and only) funeral home in South Africa to build a funeral insurance book and later acquire a licence from the Financial Services Board (FSB) in 2008 to operate an insurance business, trading under the name Covision Life.

In 2011 Covision Life took a strategic decision to sell the life company to Hollard Life and enter in to business arrangement (BA) with Hollard.  After a successful BA arrangement, once again the Covision went on its own and trade under Covision My Life.

In another bold, but logical move, we established a Wealth Management division through which, in partnership with leading asset management companies in South Africa, we offer investment advice and custom crafted investment portfolios aimed at building our customers’ wealth and giving them financial peace of mind.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               .

Through our three divisions – Covision Wealth, Covision My Life and Covision Funeral Service Management – we offer a convenient and comprehensive suite of services catering to your needs at different stages of your life. These could range from saving up to buy your first home or investing in your education, to travelling or planning for your retirement or your family’s wellbeing when you are gone.
