South Africa, 7 September 2023: For two consecutive years, Sanlam has been recognised by the Financial Intermediaries Association of South Africa (FIA) as the winner of the 2023 Intermediary Experience Award in the category: Long Term Insurer Life/Risk. The FIA Awards are the nation’s leading measure of product provider excellence, based on an independent survey of industry experts, including financial advisers and insurance brokers.


Jean Lombard, Chief Executive at Sanlam Risk and Savings, says, “This is an extremely proud moment for us. Being acknowledged by our industry and partners is hugely affirming that we’re delivering on our promise to empower more South Africans to be financially confident, secure and prosperous. These awards set the standard locally and beyond, so they’re a robust indication that we meet the global benchmark. Thank you to our team for their consistent dedication; it continues to pay dividends as we change the face of people’s financial wellbeing in this country.


The FIA Intermediary Experience Awards have been the best-known annual recognition event in the industry for over 20 years. They acknowledge insurers for the products, solutions and services they offer to the end-consumer, through member intermediaries or financial advisers.


Lombard adds, “It’s humbling for us to be acknowledged by advisers and brokers countrywide. We pride ourselves on these partnerships as we know that working closely alongside intermediaries is the only way to secure the best outcome for our clients.”


The awards serve as an important reminder of the complex relationships required between all financial service industry stakeholders to drive optimal outcomes for clients. Lombard concludes, “We’re all working to achieve the same result – changing the face of people’s financial futures by giving them access to professional financial advice. It’s rewarding to witness the shared commitment to this goal.


“We know that choosing the right intermediary and product provider is pivotal for people to access the right cover for their unique circumstances. This bolsters resilience so individuals can rebuild from financial set-backs, when life’s curveballs come knocking. We want people to feel confident and at peace knowing their families are protected.”
