Today marks another key milestone for the Sanlam Group as it celebrates 20 years since demutualisation – in the same year as its centenary celebration.

Demutualising saw more than 2 million Sanlam policyholders turned into Sanlam shareholders, with the majority becoming shareholders for the first time.

‘Because we’ve had a resilience and a diversified business, we’ve been able to withstand the knocks that we’ve had,’ says Group CEO Ian Kirk.

‘A big thank you to all our staff at all levels of the organisation. Without all the staff contributing and implementing our strategy, we would never have achieved what we have.’
