A mutual society does not have external shareholders that it needs to please so it can put the policyholders first.

In the last nine years alone, the firm has given R8 billion in extra bonuses in the form of benefits for their clients. With a client base of over five and a half million, that’s a big benefit.

A mutual society is closer to the older burial groups where everyone pooled their money to pay for funeral costs. At AVBOB the shareholders are those who have taken out cover, and so you benefit from gains the company makes.
