Our Story

20Twenty was developed in partnership with IQbusiness.

A South African first, this multi-facet servicing platform idea was born in 2015. Referring a previous collaboration between Ben and Empie the platform was initially called ‘Rainmaker’.


In March 2018 the 2 gentlemen approached IQbusiness to explore collaboration options. The concept of linking multiple brokers to clients via a service platform was novel and it was decided in October 2018 to develop 20Twenty. Work started in early 2019 with rollout to market planned for Feb/March of 2020. The COVID 19 pandemic scrambled the cards a bit, but also confirmed that this way of communicating/linking was on-target.
