Our Brand Promise & Logo

We stay close to the essence of life insurance, which is all about helping one to help others. This led to the birth of our brand promise, People Helping People (also #PeopleHelpingPeople). Our logo representation provides a deeper insight into what we stand for as an organisation. We believe growth is most meaningful when it is a community effort and that by helping people, we are stronger together. Our association with the Sanlam Group’s century-old wisdom and brand credibility is symbolised through our primary logo colours, purple and blue. 

Living by our core values ensures we keep our brand promise of People Helping People alive, to the best we can. This creates trustworthy, caring and respectful relationships with our customers, motivating us to continuously help secure their future, along with a progressive mindset and innovative thinking.
