About Us

Background

TFS Africa (Pty) Ltd was initially conceptualized in 1990 as Strategic Solutions with a small contingent of forensic investigators and intelligence agents. At the time, TFSA specialized in uncovering organized crime in the retail and pharmaceutical industry. TFSA has since established itself as the leading forensic investigative team servicing all industries and the name was changed to TFS Africa (Pty) Ltd during the latter part of 2014.

TFS Africa (Pty) Ltd is a 52% Black Owned (26% Black Woman Owned) level two B-BBEE independent South African Forensic Investigation company. Our track record of 29 years’ experience harnessed in forensic investigation, legal support and specialisation as well as project management, is complimented by established relationships with the SAPS, Interpol, the Specialised Commercial Crimes Unit, the HAWKS as well as the NPA.

TFS Africa has built an unrivalled repertoire as the leading forensic investigative firm, having executed an impressive array of strategic projects, both locally and internationally.  In the current economic climate, we found an increased demand for improved state/private sector partnerships.  TFSA has distinguished itself for consistently providing forensic investigative services to several parastatals under financial scrutiny.

Our Core team of thirty-five (35) forensic investigators, have extensive experience from within the specialised units in the SAPS, the NPA and statutory Law Enforcement Agencies, and are registered with organisations such as ACFE, ICFP, PSIRA and IAFCI.  Between them the team has combined field experience in excess of 350 Years.

Our constitutional and legally compliant awareness in methodology and approach ensures that our clients and all stakeholders are treated in an objectively fair, dignified and equal manner.

Our investigative methodology is characterised by the incorporation of forensic technology enhancements that facilitate and expedite the execution of fact-finding missions. We also consult clients about the most suitable technology applications to deploy in their organisations to detect, prevent and manage fraudulent and corrupt activity.

Furthermore, a comprehensive network of associates (based on the high standards set by TFSA) has been established to ensure a complete national footprint with optimal efficiency to our client base.

TFSA’s national footprint includes qualified registered assessors. This allows TFSA to investigate a wide variety of insurance associated claims and as such is a listed service provider for several insurance companies as well as legal practices.
