Our focus is to create and enhance value through various investment strategies.
With assets under management of just over N$24 billion, Sanlam Investments proudly manages just over 20% of Namibia's domestic savings. A locally run investment house by passionate Namibians, Sanlam Investments have managed to establish an independent asset management business with a well- balanced structured team, a reliable investment platform and an entrenched commitment to Namibia consistently delivering top-half performance for its clients in the managed, pooled and collective investments area.
Our diversified client offering is based on traditional asset management bridging off into alternative investment products, private equity investments, infrastructure investments, domestic and international unit trusts, listed and unlisted property investments, Namibian dollar and foreign currency-based offshore funds to name but a few.
We also boast managing the two largest unit trust funds in the country being the Sanlam Namibia Inflation linked Fund and the Sanlam Namibia Active Fund. Our investment philosophy is based on an active pragmatic value style with our core ethos: Superior returns are generated through a systematic, disciplined and focused research driven process. Our investment decisions are taken in a constructive manner with individual accountability supported by top-class systems, research and technology.
Given the current levels of volatility and uncertainty in global and local markets, calm, sober-minded, pragmatic thinking is a key approach when managing people’s money. Although we are a traditional, long asset manager, we see our growth in the unlisted infrastructure private equity & property investments and structured solutions. We are also aggressively looking at building our private wealth business and index tracking- based solutions for our clients.
We welcome the imminent changes in the regulatory environment that compel institutional investors to redirect investments into local economic development, something that’s creating exciting opportunities in one of the most stable and growing economies on the continent.

These portfolios offer capital protection and are appropriate for members approaching retirement, members whose employment is vulnerable to economic changes and risk-averse members.
