About Sanlam Namibia


Originally established as a life insurance company in 1928, we’ve grown into a leading financial services group with our head office in Windhoek and branch offices throughout Namibia.

We are a committed group of financial experts who, through innovation and superior performance, aim to add value to all spheres of your life.

Although we offer excellent financial services, including life insurance, retirement annuities, savings products, unit trusts and trust services, we’re not just about premiums and policies. We also provide intelligent investment and risk products to Namibian group funds and schemes.

And, far more importantly, our first-class financial planners are committed to thinking strategically when it comes to your money.

The mission of Sanlam Namibia is to grow shareholder value and provide financial peace of mind to our stakeholders through:

  • Trusted advice

  • Integrity: We walk our talk; our personal and professional conduct are consistent with the common public good; we are trustworthy (being honest, sincere and ethical in all we do)
  • Passion: We employ people with a zest for life and work; who are fully engaged with work and life (being excited and enthusiastic about what we do)
  • Innovative: We foster and reward dynamic and creative contributions


Working at Sanlam goes beyond merely a day job. It encompasses an ethos and culture, a way of doing business. We call it the Sanlam Way. The Wealthsmiths™ way.

Sanlam is based on a fundamental belief in honest, hard work to make the most of every rand we’re entrusted with. We respect how hard people work for their money and we strive to make it work as hard for them as they did to earn it.

In pursuit of this brand philosophy, you will work alongside interesting, passionate people and have the chance to be a part of challenging projects in a multicultural, stimulating environment. Over and above your skillset, there will be many opportunities for you to further Sanlam’s Wealthsmith ™ ethos, not only in the office but also in the greater community and environment in which we operate.
