Sanlam Investments focuses on the factors that drive long-term growth for our clients. Backed by the global financial strength and heritage of our parent company, we have built an asset manager with autonomous investment teams that are unconstrained by a “house view”, meaning our fund managers have the freedom and flexibility to pursue their most compelling long-term investment ideas.
 

A long history of looking forward

Sanlam Investments offers the best of both worlds: a boutique ethos, supported by the strength, heritage and experience of our global parent. We take a differentiated approach to investment: as well as an extensive suite of funds in core asset classes such as, equities, fixed income and alternatives, we also have a distinct range of specialist thematic funds that are designed to tap into long-term economic and market trends, working alongside core holdings as part of a diversified investment portfolio.
 

Focussing on tomorrow 

Over time, the performance of the major asset classes has become increasingly correlated. Our range of specialist thematic funds view the investible universe from a different perspective, taking a step back to focus on the themes and trends that are likely to drive economic and market performance over the long-term, from social change and demographic shifts to developments in health care and smart technology. 

Our current themes include artificial intelligencereal assetsglobal listed real estatesustainable equity incomehybrid capital, and global inflation-linked debt. All our strategies have been developed to meet our clients’ diverse and evolving needs and are managed by specialist teams with a wealth of experience in their areas of expertise.  
 

High conviction. Deep experience 

While uncertainty is rarely welcomed by global stock markets, it also creates opportunities to identify new trends and pinpoint the long-term beneficiaries of those trends. Our experienced fund managers are equipped with specialist knowledge that has been developed over decades of successful investment and are constantly analysing the market for future growth opportunities. Ultimately, we believe that deep experience alongside current research and innovation will drive future returns.
