About Us

We offer multiple investment options and insurance cover to meet your individual needs. Our extensive knowledge of multiple insurance packages from the most professional and reliable companies in Southern Africa and abroad make Garden Route Life and Investment Brokers your best choice.

The company has specialist divisions to assist with your specific insurance or investment requirements including Life and disability cover, income protection, pension and investment business – for commercial or personal needs.
