Offshore Investments

We can help you structure a personalised offshore investment strategy.

Investing outside South Africa enables you to benefit from opportunities that are not available locally and protects you from the risks of rand depreciation as well as political and economic risk. However, people invest offshore for different reasons. Your reasons are based on your financial circumstances, your dreams and plans for your future. We understand that meeting your goals is directly dependent on having an investment strategy that takes these personal factors into account. Our carefully chosen international partners can offer you:

  • A tailored international portfolio
  • An international trading account
  • A portfolio of international mutual funds

To invest offshore with Sanlam Private Wealth, you can use your annual R10 million allowance, your additional annual R1m special allowance, our asset swap capacity, or transfer your existing funds abroad onto our platform.

We Have Access to Some of the Best Asset Managers in the World

We have identified many unit trusts within the Sanlam Group and from other providers that we believe will provide you with solid outperformance over the medium to long term. We have excellent relationships with these fund managers, which gives us good insight into these funds. We can also offer you access to exchange-traded fund products that allows you to choose between active and passive investments, depending on your investment philosophy and approach to costs.
