About Silent Partners

Silent Partners is a collaboration of ex-bankers who share their skills and experience as consultants and trouble-shooters in banking matters. We know how banks think because we have been ‘on the inside’ for many years and filled leadership roles in the banking industry.

“Banking will never be the same…” – Jan S Marais; founder of Trust Bank South Africa (Now part of ABSA).

In 2015, we realized that bank customers had little access to experienced bankers or banking decision-makers. Bank managers turnover rates were so high that customers would be lucky if they had the same bank manager for longer than six months. ‘Relationship banking’ was being replaced by a systematized model which relied more on ‘processes’ than on human experience.

Silent Partners brings old-school banking wisdom into todays’ impersonal and process-driven industry.
