At Santam, we believe in a simple principle. We believe that insurance is something that should add value, not questions or uncertainty. It should provide peace of mind, not parameters or excuses, and that has been our philosophy since we first opened our doors on 1 May 1918 in Burg Street, Cape Town.
With assets totalling more than R17 billion, a countrywide, world-class contact centre infrastructure, a thriving intermediary network and more than 650 000 policy holders, it’s no wonder that Santam is South Africa’s leading short-term insurer. Santam also holds business interests in Zimbabwe, Malawi, Uganda, Tanzania and Zambia, and we hold strategic investments in various companies within the insurance industry, including the subsidiary Santam Namibia Ltd.
We consider our broker relationships to be one of our core strengths, and we continue to promote it as a channel of choice to our clients. We do, however, provide clients with multiple points of access, so that you can deal with us in the way that you feel most comfortable.
At Santam, we believe in doing insurance good and proper, and we’ve been doing it that way for nearly 100 years. With a market share exceeding 22%, Santam focuses on corporate, commercial and personal markets.
