Mr. Stephen Tennant CFP®

The 1980’s saw the birth of the Personal computer and Bill Gates giving a keynote speech on “Information at your fingertips”. The SA Retirement Fund Industry, like so many others at the time, were reliant on old fashioned systems and struggled to embrace the concepts of the information rich age that was to come. In 1990 I saw the need in the industry, for a nimble company which provided superior technology, service and communication and so Tennant Life Benefits was formed.

From the outset we held onto traditional values,which could be enshrined in modern systems that provided clients with rapid access to information and complete transparency. Financial services and advice is not as complicated as people think. We set out to make the many financial concepts as simple as possible for all to understand. Consistency in thought and advice achieves this.

As an independent consulting company, with international reach, Tennant Life Benefits are able to place business with a large selection of service providers with whom we have fostered excellent relationships. This allows us to match our client’s needs with the best possible solutions.

No business can be successful without a team of incredible, highly skilled employees. Tennant Life Benefits has been extraordinarily fortunate in having a longstanding professional team who have bought into the values of our company – complexity made simple and service above all else. We all love what we do!
