About Us

History

Genrand has been informally, and on a small scale, involved in financing related matters for the past few years. The increasingly strained relationship between banks and their clients was identified as being a niche market into which Genrand could move as applicants could not obtain the required facilities and/or help from their banks.

We started with only one product offering, being property related Bridging Finance. Through our affiliation with BFASA (since February 2008) we were introduced to various large role players in the industry who offered us established and large monetary facilities into which we could tap. This brought a whole new dimension to our company as we initially did bridging from own and borrowed funds.

As time lapsed our product offerings increased, and we can now offer clients various products to satisfy their needs, including structured finance and medium term loans with immovable property.

We started to receive applications from various areas nationally which led to the need to have a national footprint in the market. This led to the launch of our Franchising activities. Our franchises are independently owned and operated by the individual Franchisees.

What sets us apart is our strategic and innovative approach to financing, our large product suite and our understanding of the importance of practical and cost-effective financing for the individual and company.

People

At Genrand we perform as a team to ensure that every project is accomplished with the optimum efficiency and originality as we are often mandated by small companies and large corporations. Our professional team consists of skilled individuals with backgrounds in finance and law (local and international), with years of corporate experience.
