Santam is the leading general insurer in South Africa with a market share of more than 22%. We provide a diverse range of general insurance products and services in southern Africa and internationally through a network of intermediaries and direct channels. We serve more than 1 million policyholders who range from individuals to commercial and specialist business owners and institutions.

Santam’s commitment to its policyholders and clients is captured in the brand promise, Insurance good and proper, which emphasises responsible and ethical insurance.

Santam Specialist

Santam Specialist focuses on the insurance of complex and niche market risks. Underwriting these classes requires skilled resources to assess and quantify the risk and exposure, and is evaluated through our underwriting managers and business units. Our strategic intent is to provide specialist products that are client-driven and supported by bespoke underwriting criteria to manage and quantify their risks.

Santam Specialist Real Estate

As a part of the Specialist business unit within Santam, we believe that real estate insurance solutions should be appropriately designed, simple to access, simple to understand and provide sustainable protection to our policyholders.

We offer innovative products and services to meet the needs of the collective property schemes industry (sectional title / home owners association / retirement villages), which cater for the residential and commercial real estate markets. We also offer specialised insurance solutions for the broader real estate industry, including property developers.

Our team has in-depth expertise, experience and understanding of the sectional title industry. We offer technical assistance to ensure that the sectional title scheme runs smoothly, is financially sound, and complies with the relevant regulations and legislations. We understand the importance of working in partnership with our intermediaries to provide the best possible insurance solutions for residential and commercial collective property schemes to manage risk associated with the real estate industry.
