About Us

The Batho Batsho Bakopane Group

B3 is an Authorised Financial Services Provider. The Batho Batsho Bakopane Group (B3) was established by inspired and resourceful Business professionals in June 1991 as a broad insurance broking business. It is fully owned and managed by black entrepreneurs. The end of the eighties saw the marketing of funeral policies taking a less prominent role in the life assurance industry, save for the provision of such products through group schemes and no longer as individual family policies.

B3 adjusted its marketing strategy accordingly and the rise of a new force in the marketing of funeral policies began. Entry into the funeral undertaking business became a natural and logical move after the success of the funeral assurance business.

The arrival of B3 in these sectors of business laid the foundation for higher competitive business practices and B3 relentlessly became the trendsetters. Today B3 is a well-known brand for the provision of funeral services and assurance.

B3 has its roots firmly set in the African tradition of Ubuntu. This philosophy can be described as “we are  who we are because the people recognized and appreciated that we should be”.

A big majority of our success comes from the fact that we treat our clients with the utmost respect and compassion. Due to the nature of a funeral, people are often in a very emotional place when they contact us. We offer the best  quality service and try to give our clientele more than what they pay for.

One of biggest strengths is our ability to show compassion and remorse for every single person that we deal with. A funeral is a very sad day in any persons’ life and we realise this. This support structure has seen many of our clients praising our service and this is a testament to our willingness to make you feel at ease during this turbulent time.
