It’s a risky business

In a landscape of continuous change as well as geopolitical and investment risk, it is important to know exactly what the risks are to deliver better success for your retirement fund members.

Once you understand the risks, you’re able to manage them better.

Join us at the Sanlam Investments Institutional Insights 2017 conference in Johannesburg where our exceptional line-up of international speakers will be delivering key insights from their own experiences. We’ll help you define the risk parameters and show you when is the time to be bold and when should you practice caution, so make sure you pencil us in.

See more about our previous conferences here: 2014, 2015 and 2016.

This is an invitation only event. Please contact us via the form alongside, or via for more information.

Institutional Impact

Research and commentary for better fiduciary outcomes.

At Sanlam Investments, we recognise the greater fiduciary pressures placed on institutional investors in an environment of increased regulatory and investment complexity. When it comes to investing, we carefully do our homework, weigh up the pros and cons, check, re-check and analyse, scrutinise and remove emotion from each and every investment decision we make.

Because we believe that there'se a time to be cautious and a time to be bold. Knowing when to be which is what makes us Wealthsmiths™.
