Conduit Capital is a holding company listed on the JSE with the specific objective of supporting its subsidiary and associate companies. Conduit operates through two main segments, namely Investments and Insurance & Risk. The former houses the group's investment activities, provides support to subsidiary companies where necessary and allocates capital, while the latter is the holding company of the Group's insurance interests. The Group is managed on a decentralised basis where subsidiaries have autonomy to conduct their affairs with the long-term objective of compounding intrinsic value over time.

The Conduit Group launched its Internship Programme in 2017 and is committed to skills development and skills upliftment within the financial sector, whereby creating opportunities for graduates, post-graduates and intern students to get practical work experience which will complement their studies or/and improve their competence and employability. This paid intern will be expected to work between 15 and 25 hours a week in our organisation, with the Programme starting in March/April and August/September respectively for a minimum period of 3 months and a maximum of 12 months.
