Governance Leadership Remuneration Summary

Our Remuneration Approach 2019

Sanlam’s remuneration philosophy and policy support the Group strategy by incentivising the behaviour required to meet and exceed predetermined strategic goals. Both short and long-term strategic objectives are measured and rewarded. This blended approach mitigates excessive risk-taking and balances longer-term strategic objectives with short-term operational performance.

Our Reporting Approach 2019

We take a systemic and strategic approach to reporting with an annual reporting suite structured to meet the needs of different stakeholders effectively. This is part of our commitment to transparent and relevant stakeholder reporting, and is enhanced through personal interaction and feedback.

Our reporting elements consider regulatory requirements and reporting guidelines such as the International Integrated Reporting Council’s (IIRC’s) Integrated Reporting Framework, the King IV Report on Corporate Governance™ for South Africa, 2016, the JSE Listings Requirements and the Companies Act, 71 of 2008, as amended.
