Transparent Financial Services (TFS) outlined their services to the printing industry at the Graphics, Print and Sign Expo, which ran from 14-16 September at Gallagher Convention Centre.
TFS, through its subsidiary companies, provides short-term and life insurance solutions, in addition to medical aid and medical gap insurance products as well. TFS is confident it can provide an organisation with a one-stop financial service solution ranging from retirement planning to pension and provident fund administration, to risk and investment management.
The company’s aim during the expo was to target businesses, with the employee in mind, and outline its benefit structure. TFS also has a sister company, Transparent Consulting Services (TCS). TCS is a registered credit provider with the National Credit Regulator (NCR) whose mission it is to provide members in the printing industry with access to housing finance so that they are able to buy a home, upgrade or make repairs to their current home.
For the past 14 years, TFS has provided members of the SATU National Provident Fund and the Printing Industry Pension Fund access to home loans throughout the country with their pension-backed home loan facility. TCS has now taken over this part of the business and is making this facility available to the printing industry as a whole. This means that you no longer have to belong to the union to take out a pension-backed home loan with them. However, you will have to be a member of either the SATU National Provident Fund or the Printing Industry Pension Fund for SATU Members in the printing industry to qualify to apply for a home loan through TCS.
