Who We Are




Level 2 B-BBEE Contributor, Qualifying Small Enterprise (125% recognition spend)

The Icon Group is proud to have partnered with Siyandisa Trust in 2017. Siyandisa is 100% Black owned investment group with an emphasis on the following:

  • Achieving growth through collaboration and harnessing economies of scale through its strategic investments.
  • Contributing towards the South African economy through its collaborative efforts with its investment and strategic partners.
  • Investing in businesses that are serious about transformation and wish to contribute meaningfully to the broad-based transformation of the South African economy and society and are open to adopting clear strategies to this end.
  • Providing support and access to BEE initiatives that ensure positive contributions by its partners to supplier and enterprise development, skills development, procurement, and socio-economic development.

Siyandisa’s investment business is conducted under our primary brand Siyandisa Trust, a wholly black owned investment trust acquiring and holding private equity interests in investee companies. Siyandisa Trust collaborates closely with the Siyandisa Womens Trust, when investing in partner companies. The Siyandisa Foundation is the Siyandisa group’s CSI vehicle.

We specifically chose the Siyandisa Trust as partner because of the main objectives of the Siyandisa Foundation tying in with our core business, which is the recruitment and supply of suitably qualified personnel.

Supporting our vision of investing in our future, the Siyandisa Foundation Scholarship Programme has as its goal the growing of excellence through the identification of and investment in our future leaders and entrepreneurs.

We search nationally and identify the top learners to qualify for our programme. The Scholarship Programme has been developed to have an impact on Grade 12 learners and provides vital resources, support and mentorship to deserving learners in a critical transitional stage of their lives – aspects vitally necessary for the achievement of results in matriculation examinations and the successful transition to a tertiary education.
