Starting a business has traditionally been out of reach for many people. Big ventures used to mean big investments. Fedgroup's groundbreaking Impact Farming changes the game, allowing investors to own income-earning assets on a farm for as little as R300.

To farm successfully requires experience. That is why Fedgroup has partnered with some of the best farmers in the country to ensure you maximise your returns. We have carefully vetted each partner,looking at track records, existing contracts with suppliers and ability to scale up. Fedgroup provides the platforms for owners, farmers and buyers to come together - with you, the investor - sharing in the profit.
Established in 1990, Fedgroup has grown into South Africa's leading independent financial services group. Our independence has allowed us to develop our own point of view on the business of insurance and investment. We put people before profit. We believe in old-fashioned ideas like honesty, integrity and dignity.
Many ventures boast about massive returns but expect clients to take on all of the risk. Fedgroup believes that we can only offer the best possible service to our clients if we also have serious skin in the game. For our solar projects, we have acquired the largest installer of residential solar energy in the country, Emergent Energy, as our preferred service provider. We have also invested R20 million of our own capital into our blueberry farms.
Fedgroup's values are centered around integrity and putting customers first. We have built this care for our clients into our Impact Farming venture with forecast models that were deliberately designed to be conservative, and with numerous measures to safeguard our clients' money built into the system. Extensive due diligence has been carried out before launching Impact farming. This has been carried out not only on the assets that we offer for sale, but also on our service providers to ensure they can deliver on the task of managing these assets. We also carefully considered where and how the harvests would be sold to test that there was a market waiting. We have built market-tested financial models to map out returns over the period your asset is in operation.
Although you own an individual asset, your income is a percentage of the entire yield of the farm you have invested in. By pooling the yield, we mitigate the risk of your individual asset underperforming. Just like in a beehive, there is safety in numbers. We have service level agreements in place with all our providers to ensure that your assets continue to perform in line with our projections. And the insurance of your assets is included in the purchase price.
