Mission, vision, values and purpose

We assist South African businesses and individuals to unlock their full potential whilst growing with them every step of the way.

1998
On the corner of a busy street in Sandton, a meeting of minds occurred between three individuals: “We can offer solutions to a niche market of clients not being serviced by the banks!”
1999
The newly incorporated organisation starts servicing the market by offering Specialised Finance and Property Finance.

Our Proud History

For two decades, Merchant West has organically grown its business across the financial services sector. Starting in 1998 as a subsidiary within a listed asset management firm; in 2002 the founding directors identified the massive potential of the business and undertook a management buyout.
 
Since then Merchant West has grown exponentially, adding new branches and franchises along with an expanding professional staff contingent. For a more
detailed view of our growth, have a look at the full timeline on the side.
