Government and the private sector must continue to work closely together to bring about the desired results in building a financially stable nation where opportunities and equal wealth distribution is shared equally amongst citizens, said Aram Martin, councillor of Oshakati West at the re-opening of Sanlam Namibia Holdings’ branch in Oshakati last week.
“Experience has shown that the establishment of branches across the country in the private sector not only provides much needed services to the masses at a large scale but has also proven to eradicate the unemployment rate by offering employment opportunities to previously disadvantaged groups across the country,” he said.
Sanlam said the re-opening of a new combined office of Sanlam and Namlife is a deliberate effort not only to bring quality, superior services to its clients in Oshakati and the entire northern regions, but also its commitment to bringing affordable and innovative products and services to their doorsteps.
“Since its establishment in Namibia, Sanlam has blazed a trail as a catalyst and a solid partner for development. Sanlam Namibia has been and is still in the forefront of growth and development in Namibia, be it in its core business of financial service provision or in the socio-economic spheres,” said Sanlam Namibia Holdings’ CEO, Tertius Stears.
The company has been operating in Oshakati for the last 20 years providing people with life insurance, education and savings products, retirement planning, wills and estate planning, accident cover, funeral cover, dread disease cover, disability cover, among other financial services.
