HARARE – DUAL-listed financial services company, Old Mutual, is upbeat at opportunities in Zimbabwe and the rest of the continent.
The sentiment follows the opening of a new one-stop-shop branch in Chinhoyi, Zimbabwe, to offer clients their main financial and banking services under the Greenzone shop brand name.
It is the eighth such facility in the country.
The newly opened Greenzone will offer life assurance, short term insurance, investment and CABS banking services (formerly Central African Building Society) among other products.
Other Greenzone facilities have been opened in the second capital Bulawayo, Chiredzi, the capital Harare, the ancient Masvingo, Mutare and Zvishavane.
“The commissioning of this Greenzone today (Monday) symbolises our faith in Africa, Zimbabwe and indeed Chinhoyi as a source of opportunity not only for us as a business but also for our customers,” said Jonas Mushosho, Old Mutual Zimbabwe and Rest of Africa Group Chief Executive Officer.
The company recently announced that it was repositioning its brand identity to reflect its pan-African origins as well as a new focus on customer-centricity.
The refreshed brand was unveiled following the company’s primary listing
on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and secondary relisting on the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange in June 2018.
