Nautilus Awards 2017

The Nautilus Awards recognise the efforts of the top broker consultants and regional managers throughout Southern Africa.

Much like the Nautilus mollusk, a resilient “living fossil” species, Nautilus winners show consistent determination and focus in achieving their goals. The 2017 competition is in full swing and will be running from 1 January 2017 to 30 September 2017, culminating in a prestigious two-day event and awards ceremony in Cape Town in November. During the two-day period, the winners will get the opportunity to network with the executive team and enjoy some well-deserved downtime in the vibrant Cape.

2016 Award Winners

The 2016 Nautilus winners were treated to a two-day stay in Cape Town, during which time they engaged in one-on-one meetings with our business leaders and Sanlam Investments fund managers. Day 1 of the luxury getaway concluded with a private charter on the exclusive Tigger 2 yacht, followed by dinner and the prize giving at Sevruga, overlooking the harbour. Our winners enjoyed 5-star overnight accommodation before heading out to relax on Day 2, which included wine tasting, lunch, quad biking and horse riding at the Cape’s beautiful Rheboskloof Estate.
