Business Summary

Who We Are

We are a leading financial services group, originally established as a life insurance company in 1918. We demutualised and listed on the JSE Limited and Namibian Stock Exchange in 1998.

Our head office is in Bellville near Cape Town in South Africa and we have offices throughout South Africa and business interests elsewhere in Africa, Europe, India, the USA and Australia.

Sanlam is a pioneer in transformation and the Ubuntu-Botho transaction in 2004 reinforced its position as a leading financial services group, underpinned by quality BEE leadership and a comprehensive strategy to ensure meaningful and broad-based participation across South Africa.

The Group is also actively involved in CSI programmes with a focus in the areas of education, HIV/Aids, economic development and social development. Its CSI budget equates more that 0,5% of net profit after tax.

What We Do

We provide financial solutions to individual and institutional clients.

These solutions include individual, group and short-term insurance, personal financial services such as estate planning, trusts, home and personal loans, savings and linked products, investment, asset management, property asset management, stockbroking, risk management and capital market activities.

We provide these solutions to various segments of the markets where we operate and offer the solutions from a number of mutually dependent business entities in our Group.

From a life insurance company with our establishment in 1918, we have, in short, grown into a diversified one-stop financial services group, offering our clients a journey for life for their financial needs.
