Social Responsibility

For us, social responsibility is a verb. We have a genuine interest in the communities in which we operate and facilitate change and development, where possible. Our annual golf day presents an opportunity for our staff to identify causes and charities that are supported by the proceeds of this event.


In addition, we support the good work of these organisations.

My policies were professionally maintained and all correspondence was always received positively. The brokers went out of their way to ensure my comfort, both physically and financially. I wish Success Brokers everything of the best in the future and I will remain a loyal customer for as long as they will have me.

  • I have been a client of Success Brokers for at least 20 years now and this was my first experience of needing their assistance after being involved in a car accident. I have always received exceptional and professional service from Michelle (my previous broker) and now from my current broker, Marina. Very helpful team. Constantly kept in contact with me. Once I completed the claim forms, I received a call to collect a loan car which is an absolute blessing. Thank you Michelle, Marina and the team.

  • One of the most important drivers for the effective management of any company’s insurance portfolio is the relationship you establish with your broker. If you are aligned with suppliers and can synergise as partners, both businesses will experience higher success rates, decreased risks and enhanced collaboration. Very few customer-supplier relationships qualify as partnerships. Success Brokers (Pty) Ltd.’s engaging and professional environment has paved way for a truly gifted mutually beneficial relationship, which has tremendously enhanced Stallion’s foothold within the Security Industry. Success Brokers (Pty) Ltd.’s is a company that works, lives, and breathes exceptional customer value, but most importantly this is a company that can enable a real partnership relationship based on confidence, credibility and mutual benefit.
