Who We Are
With a team of over 30 actuarial and support staff, we provide actuarial and consulting services to more than 60 clients in South Africa and the broader African continent, where we are firmly established. We have been in operation for over 80 years – previously as Hymans Robertson in the UK and more recently from South Africa as QED.
At QED, we trace our roots back to 1921, when Hymans Robertson was founded in the United Kingdom. QED (formerly Hymans Robertson South Africa) was established in South Africa in 1991. QED is a fully independent private company, which provides it with maximum flexibility and objectivity when serving clients.
QED focuses on building strong, long-lasting partnerships with clients. For a partnership to last long, all partners must succeed. Long-term success, in turn, requires careful long-term planning and effective solutions to current challenges.
Beyond the horizon.
An ever-changing business environment, cut-throat competition, regulatory initiatives, and a host of other challenges can derail your long-term plans. Developing and implementing sustainable long-term strategies entails an innovative and disciplined approach while navigating immediate obstacles.
QED partners with clients to help them identify and address current and future challenges by providing cutting-edge actuarial and risk management services.
Only if our clients succeed in the long-term can we also succeed: our success is intertwined with yours. A strong and lasting client relationship enhances our understanding of your business so we can add even greater value. We partner with our clients to help them surpass their organic potential and achieve success.
We strive to be your trusted advisor and long-term partner through our client-centric approach. Our advice and solutions are always tailored pragmatically to suit each client’s resources and circumstances. We are passionate about service and our cornerstone approach – Professionalism, Excellence, and Insight – enables us to consistently exceed our clients’ expectations.
QED employees always follow best practice standards and act with utmost integrity. Being a fully independent firm means our advice is always objective and we always act in our client’s best interests.
QED delivers quality service of the highest standards. We employ specialists to ensure that our advice is always informed and up to date. Our teams are extremely focussed and deadline driven to ensure we meet the often-tight timing constraints of our clients – without compromising quality.
QED has provided services in Africa for many years and understands the business environment and context. We are, therefore, able to offer valuable insights based on our extensive hands-on experience, expertise, and research.
