The Shackleton Group was born in 2002 with the formation of Shackleton Credit Management, a company established to acquire and manage a non-performing loan portfolio from a major South African bank. In 2005 Shackleton Risk Management, which provides niche insurance products to legal and insolvency practitioners, was added to the group.
In 2012 the Group started laying plans to enter into Long Term Insurance and in 2013 entered the market with the launch of Shackleton Life which specializes in life insurance to cover – financial needs, contingent liabilities, home loans, debts and general insurance. The key is to have Life Insurance products that are competitive, easy to understand and easily accessible. The Shackleton Group directors have extensive experience in the specialized fields of debt recovery; insolvency; property; insurance; and banking.
The Shackleton Group derives its business philosophy from the person after whom it is named, Sir Ernest Shackleton, the intrepid Antarctic explorer. Like Sir Ernest, The Shackleton Group recognizes the importance of human capital – the people tasked with the day-to-day running of its businesses.
The Shackleton Group’s strength lies in the people it employs who promote The Shackleton Group’s core values of integrity, honesty, accountability and excellence in all of their dealings. Like Sir Ernest and his men, our people are innovative solution seekers. We endeavour to tailor make our product offerings to suit the requirements of our many clients and the financial institutions to which we provide services.
