Our origins

RMB Westport opened its doors in 2008 when Rand Merchant Bank (RMB), through its Real Estate Investment Banking division entered into a joint venture with the Westport Property Group to become RMB Westport.

The rationale of the joint venture was to combine the operating and development expertise of the Westport Property Group, with the structuring and investment expertise of RMB to enable the construction, development and maintenance of high-grade retail, commercial and industrial property assets in key growth nodes in Africa. RMB Westport today employs a team with exceptional real estate development and financial structuring skills – committed to delivering projects on time and on budget.
