Through our business activities, we accumulate premiums and pools savings on behalf of clients. We provide ancillary financial services so that clients are able to create and protect their wealth.
We invest the funds we accumulate responsibly in a range of asset classes, enabling us to grow our clients wealth through investment returns and to protect wealth by being able to pay benefits if unforeseen events cause financial loss. We also grow our clients’ wealth by accelerating their ability to accumulate assets through ancillary financial services such as lending. Our shareholders share equitably in the overall wealth we create through the fees and margins we earn from our financial solutions.
Society benefits from the stability that we provide to the financial system. We also act as a funder of government and corporates, thereby contributing to economic growth and socio-economic development. By creating value for society we enhance the size of our client base and the talent pool from which we attract the skills we need to operate.
Through our business activities, we create a positive cycle of financial resilience and prosperity that enable individuals, organisations and communities to build a world where they can live their best possible lives – which is why Sanlam exists.
Our four pillar strategy keeps us focused on what we need to do to create value sustainably, thereby activating a positive growth cycle for Sanlam and our stakeholders.
Continuous transformation is central to Sanlam’s ability to adapt to a changing world and underpins all of the strategic pillars.
