Sanlam's boutique breakfast
By Teamspirit on Thursday, 17 May 2018
This week saw Teamspirit present Sanlam’s boutique fund management team to a room full of influential journalists from a range of national and financial trade publications.
This was the first time the wealth manager has run a press event with fund managers from across the UK arm of its business. Speaking to a packed private dining event at Searcy’s in the iconic Gherkin building, Jonathan Polin, Group CEO of Sanlam UK, began by telling the journalists that the breadth of the wealth manager’s investment proposition was its ‘best-kept secret’.
He was followed by a line-up of fund managers, who delved into topical themes and explored issues surrounding monetary policy, the nation’s ageing population, and the recent Facebook data debacle.
The success of Sanlam’s multi award-winning team can be attributed to the autonomy they are granted to develop their own investment approach, unconstrained by any single house style. And with active management often in the spotlight, it illustrated how their method can potentially lead to superior risk adjusted returns.
The event was wrapped up with quick-fire Q&A, giving the journalists the chance to get under the skin of issues that had piqued their interest.
With a good breakfast and a beautiful view across the City, it was a great start to the day.
