In 1980 Lallie Sewparsad joined the Group and it was at this time that they decided to expand the business to include Property Broking and purchased their first Commercial Property in the CDB of Port Shepstone. This led to the formation of Trustprop Holdings . As a result of the success of the Bookkeeping Practice and the efficient running of the Insurance and Property Divisions by Prem and Lallie Sewparsad, Ram decided to pursue a career in law and set up a Law Practice.

Having successfully set up the key areas of business, there was only room for expansion as the Bookkeeping and Insurance clientele increased and further properties were purchased.

Today the Company boasts one of the largest clientele on the Lower South Coast together with numerous properties.
