Sanlam Investments is an independent boutique asset management business based in the UK.

Specialising in providing differentiated strategies to investors, we are the international investment engine for our parent, the Sanlam Group. This means we have all equity alignment, autonomy, agility and above all the hunger for success that makes us a boutique asset manager, but with the stable backing and resources of a much larger investment house.
 
We take our roles as stewards of our clients’ assets and good corporate citizens very seriously. We incorporate dedicated ESG research into all our investment decisions and actively engage to bring about change.

We’re experienced 


People are what makes a business. Our fund managers have decades of experience across multiple cycles, gained from working within both large and small asset managers. Specialists in what they do they were drawn to our business by our culture of autonomy and accountability.

We’re structured for success 


We structure our teams to empower them to succeed. Removing bureaucracy and a central house view empowers our managers to invest according to their convictions, distraction free. Giving them an industry leading ownership and performance structure encourages long-term thinking with the drive to succeed. Adding the support and resources from an enduring and global parent (Sanlam Group) gives them the confidence and freedom to do so.
