Dynamic entrepreneur Mias Nortje merged his passion for people with his wealth of experience and formed Cosmos Brokers in 1983. Together with his wife Annamie Nortje, Cosmos Brokers had its humble beginnings in tiny offices in the heart of Cape Town’s CBD.

Installing “old school” values and getting to know each client personally has been the cornerstone of Cosmos Brokers and the business has grown from strength to strength.

Cosmos Brokers have introduced advanced administration and IT systems that have given the company a competitive advantage and have contributed to a paperless ˜green™ office environment.


Since its beginnings, Cosmos Brokers has effectively extended its family circle to an efficient, motivated team and Mias Nortje, in particular, is delighted at the new levels of service excellence.
