GTC was established in 1991 from within the Grant Thornton Johannesburg audit practice, itself part of Grant Thornton International. (The Johannesburg audit practice was established in 1920.)

Effective late 2012, GTC was obliged to separate itself from Grant Thornton due to various international regulations imposed by the SEC, which separated the asset management capability of any business from that of an audit company.

Grant Thornton Capital rebranded and changed its name to GTC, now operating as a privately owned fully independent entity from Grant Thornton. Founder Gary Mockler remains the Group CEO and a key shareholder, whilst GTC proudly continues its association with Grant Thornton, within the permitted international parameters.

As a financial advisory business, GTC holds all the necessary licenses from the Financial Services Board and is a registered FSP. GTC has been awarded the Diamond and Golden Arrow Awards for excellence in the category of ‘medium-sized pension fund administrators and consultants’ for 5 consecutive years.

Collectively the GTC group employs approximately 130 staff in the three national centres. Assets under management and administration total R42 billion. There are 100 000 participating members of retirement funds through about 350 participating employer schemes, most of these structured through one of several GTC umbrella funds. In addition, GTC consults to several thousand private clients in terms of their wealth management goals.

GTC continually aspires to being recognised in a crowded market place as a benchmark of best practice and innovative thinking. This objective is measured by ensuring the interests of all our clients are protected and placed at the core of all our decisions, business practices, company culture and ethics.

The depth of our services, the quality of our staff, our uncompromising stance on integrity and professionalism, and the easy accessibility to senior management and shareholders justify the extraordinary client retention that GTC enjoys.
