Welcome TO Barinor Holdings
The Barinor group of companies originated from multiple Benefit Societies, the first of which was established in 1886 to offer members benefits when physical ailments prevented them from working, as well as funeral cover and gratuity. Other sick funds followed, merged and eventually de-mutualised to form the insurance company, which has since grown into Barinor Holdings, where the former policy holders are now proud shareholders.
Today, Barinor is an investment holding company involved in the holding of commercial properties as well as two wine farms, now collectively known as D’Aria Wine Estate, which borders the urban edges of the Bellville and Durbanville areas in Cape Town. The company is involved in property development, property and park management, short term insurance and retirement planning and investment through its Brokerage. Through its D’Aria wine farm, it is also involved in high-quality wine production.
The Barinor Holdings (Pty) Ltd group structure is as follows:
Creating wealth with honour – this is, in essence, what Barinor is all about.
