Buying and Selling Sanlam Shares

Purchases through Computershare's share dealing service

You may phone the dealing service at 0861 100 913 for more information. Computershare will place the shares bought for you in Sanlam Share Account. In such an event, the fee for the transfer to Sanlam Share Account will be included in the administration fee of the purchase transaction.


Purchases through a stockbroker

Please contact your stockbroker for full details. If you do not have an account at a stockbroker as yet, you will be requested to open one before transactions will be done for you.

You can request the stockbroker to place your shares in Sanlam Share Account or any other CSDP of your choice. If you are already a client of the particular CSDP, the stockbroker will be able to arrange that. If not, you will first have to meet the entry requirements of the CSDP.

There are costs involved if you purchase through a stockbroker and then want to place the shares in Sanlam Share Account. See fees and costs (pdf) .


Private purchases

You may buy shares privately but please note that strict JSE/NSX rules and legislation prohibit the active trading of shares outside the JSE/NSX. Typical allowed private purchases are transfers from estates, between family members, business partners, etc.

If you are involved in such a transaction, both parties must complete a transfer form (obtainable from Computershare). The form, with the necessary revenue stamps affixed, must be forwarded to Computershare with the necessary additional information and/or documentation as set out in the fees and costs document (pdf) .

If shares acquired privately are still in certificate form, they will automatically be transferred to Sanlam Share Account in the name of the new owner. If you require a certificate, it can only be issued to you after the transfer has been done, on payment of the applicable fees.

How do I sell shares?

In South Africa, you will not be able to sell your Sanlam shares if they have not been dematerialised. Once your shares are dematerialised, you can dispose of them of through any appropriate channel described below. You may still be able to sell certificated shares privately (change of ownership) or transfer them (without change in beneficial ownership). However, to transfer the shares to the new shareholder, a transfer form (obtainable from Computershare) needs to be completed by both parties and forwarded together with the share certificate, proof of payment of the Securities Transfer Tax (STT) if applicable and all required supporting documentation to Computershare via registered mail.
