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.


About the Nautilus Awards

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.

The Sanlam Group is a full member of the Association for Savings and Investment SA. Collective investment schemes are generally medium- to long-term investments. Please note that past performances are not necessarily an accurate determination of future performances, and that the value of investments / units / unit trusts may go down as well as up. A schedule of fees and charges and maximum commissions is available from the Manager, Sanlam Collective Investments (RF) Pty Ltd & Satrix Managers (RF) (Pty) Ltd, a registered and approved Manager in Collective Investment Schemes in Securities. Additional information of the proposed investment, including brochures, application forms and annual or quarterly reports, can be obtained from the Manager, free of charge. Collective investments are traded at ruling prices and can engage in borrowing and scrip lending. Collective investments are calculated on a net asset value basis, which is the total market value of all assets in the portfolio including any income accruals and less any deductible expenses such as audit fees, brokerage and service fees. Actual investment performance of the portfolio and the investor will differ depending on the initial fees applicable, the actual investment date, and the date of reinvestment of income as well as dividend withholding tax. Forward pricing is used. The Manager does not provide any guarantee either with respect to the capital or the return of a portfolio. The performance of the portfolio depends on the underlying assets and variable market factors. Performance is based on NAV to NAV calculations with income reinvestments done on the ex-div date. Lump sum investment performances are quoted. The portfolio may invest in other unit trust portfolios which levy their own fees, and may result is a higher fee structure for our portfolio. All the portfolio options presented are approved collective investment schemes in terms of Collective Investment Schemes Control Act, No 45 of 2002 (“CISCA”). The fund may from time to time invest in foreign instruments which could be accompanied by additional risks as well as potential limitations on the availability of market information. The Manager has the right to close any portfolios to new investors to manage them more efficiently in accordance with their mandates.
The portfolio management of all the portfolios is outsourced to financial services providers authorized in terms of the Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act, 2002.
