It Was Our Primary
Business and it Still is

Our mission is to protect the economy’s assurance by providing practical, dignifying and litigable collection services.

Striving for a More Prosperous South Africa

It is not just about what we do; it is why we do it. We believe that all South Africans deserve the opportunity to make something great. Our banks carry the weight of being the stewards of our economy. They play a meaningful role in giving people access to resources that they need to build our country and economy. However, the impact of a delinquent account causes suffering on our entire nation. If left unchecked, our economy will collapse.

 

We step in on behalf of our clients by providing litigation that is:

Innovative

We are adaptive and resourceful in our conduct, whilst assisting our clients to achieve their objectives

Dignified and Fair

By respecting and treating others with dignity, we remember that everyone deserves to be treated fairly.

Transparent

We live to serve our country. We want our process to be clear to our clients as well as their clients.

Guided

We guide your clients throughout the process by educating them on best practices. This results in greater understanding and lifelong clients.

A Rich History

Founded in 1980 by Martin Hack, Victor Stupel and Howard Ross, HS&R is built on values that have remained true over the years. These values have allowed us to be innovative as well as transformative. Having served Wesbank since 1986, after 40 years we proudly serve not only Wesbank, but FNB, Nedbank, Absa, Standard Bank and MFC. We are committed to ensuring that our banks have the opportunity to give fair lending opportunities to the people of South Africa. We do this through honest and fair litigation. It was our primary business and still is.
