Sanlam UK has renamed Sanlam Four, its boutique asset management arm, to Sanlam Investments.
Effective today, 12 November, the change of name comes five years after Four Capital, founded in 2006, was acquired by Sanlam.
Sanlam Investments has £5.3 billion in assets under management in the UK, while South-Africa based parent Sanlam manages £49 billion in funds around the world.
Sanlam Investments chief executive, Alfio Tagliabue (pictured), said: ‘With the UK becoming an increasingly important part of the Sanlam Group, Sanlam Investments has been positioned as Sanlam’s international centre of excellence for asset management further leveraging the group’s scale and success.'
Jonathan Polin, CEO of Sanlam UK, suggested the rebranding should make the business ‘more aligned’ with the global Sanlam group.
He added: ‘Our new branding across the Sanlam UK business reinforces our commitment to clients that we will look after their money with skill, dedication and pride.’
In September, Sanlam UK hired Richard Pursglove, formerly of Artemis, as head of distribution, overseeing its sales and marketing strategies.
