About About

About

Since our establishment in 1918, Sanlam has been a prominent part of the South African business landscape. We have always held a long-term view of how business adapts to the demands of the environment in which it operates.

Today, in a dynamic world, we see an evolving set of social, economic, political and environmental imperatives that require our skilful response. For us at Sanlam, sustainable business practice means recognising both our broader responsibilities as an organisation in society, and the new opportunities that arise from this thinking.

Vision and Values

Our Vision is:

  • To be the leader in client-centric wealth creation, management, and protection in South Africa;
  • To be a leading Pan-African financial services Group with a meaningful presence in India and South-East Asia; and
  • To play a niche role in wealth and investment management in specific developed markets.

Our Values are:

  • Acting with integrity;
  • Growing shareholder value through innovation and superior performance;
  • Leading with courage;
  • Serving with pride; and
  • Caring because there is respect for one another.
