Serving clients better still

21 July 2019 | Business

As part of their Client First Strategic Focus which sees the company putting their clients first in all aspects of business, Sanlam opened a fully-fledged office in Katutura recently. From here, the same services are offered as at all other major Sanlam offices across the country.

According to Sanlam group CEO Tertius Stears, the opening of the office in Katutura was long overdue. “After extensive research and consultations with our clients, we decided to open this office. It makes sound business sense and it would be unwise if we fail to respond to the needs of our clients.”

At the opening, in a statement by mayor Muesee Kazapua read on his behalf by Cllr. Ananias Niizimba, he said that he was happy to see Sanlam services being brought closer to the people and community of Katutura. He stressed that for far too long, businesses were opening throughout the city while residents of Katutura are often excluded.

Speaking on behalf of the Deputy Minister of Finance Honourable Natangwe Ithete, Mr Andreas Penda Ithindi, said that the opening of the Sanlam branch resonates well with the national development agenda for inclusive and sustainable growth, “an agenda which places people at the centre of development and which recognizes that only inclusive business growth is sustainable growth.

“The expansion of investment by Sanlam is a noticeable progress point for a more private sector-led growth pathway, and it is taking place at the time when the domestic economy is still emerging from the prolonged recessionary pressures,” he said.

Sanlam recently also opened new branches at Outapi and Katima Mulilo, bringing the total number of Sanlam branches in the country to 14.

Pictured at the opening of the new Sanlam branch in Katutura, are Andreas Penda Ithindi (Ministry of Finance), Cllr Ananias Niizimba and Sanlam Group CEO Tertius Stears.
