At RMB we believe that through conducting good business we can create a better world.

The private sector plays a critical role in building a healthy society and is therefore a key role player in finding and funding solutions to societal, economic and environmental challenges. Banks are particularly well placed given their systemic role in the economy.

We believe that the most successful approach to making an impactful difference is through integrated initiatives where people and businesses collaborate, partner and engage for the greater good. We seek opportunities for innovative partnerships beyond business as usual. We work closely with government, the business community, and civil society and as an ethical corporate citizen we are committed to doing more.

With regard to corporate social investment (CSI), RMB seeks to make catalytic investments in education, training and skills development through our contribution to the FirstRand corporate foundation. We see the bigger picture as we find innovative ways to solve problems, create sustainable opportunities and inspire change in the societies in which we operate.

Today, more than ever, people and businesses in South Africa and across the world want to get involved in the communities that businesses operate in.
