The Mineworkers Provident Fund is a self-administered fund, that is centered around member centricity. MWPF has never declared a negative return to member since its inception. It’s statutory audit and governance structures aligned with stated objectives, assure servicing members.

The Fund of Choice

Through tailored solutions and member centred product development we have consistently outperformed both our target benchmark as well as a number of well-established balanced portfolios with a similar risk profile.

The Success

Our success can be attributed to our investments approach. The fund offers members a single default portfolio that seeks to deliver a real return of 4.5% above inflation (CPI+4.5%) over any consecutive five-year period at a minimum level of risk.

The future

We have only scratched the tip of the iceberg and have a lot of work ahead of us but we believe that as long as we continue to place our members at the core of what we do, we will always have the drive and passion to do better. The Fund continues to seek innovative and cost-effective ways of serving our members. We remain focused on creating the retirement fund of choice and sustainable returns and benefits.
