Boost Your Investment with the Sanlam Cumulus Investment Plan

Invest R100 000 or more in a Cumulus or Nimbus Investment and qualify for an extra 1% allocation to boost your investment. This means you will get a total enhanced allocation of up to 9%, less any negotiated upfront commission. For example, if you invest R1 000 000 you will receive an additional allocation of R90 000. After allowing for upfront commission of 3%, that’s an additional investment of R60 000.

Don’t wait for prospects to improve before entering the market. The Cumulus and Nimbus Investments offer a compelling solution:

  • Protection when markets are falling, in the form of the Sanlam Cumulus Escalating funds, which helps you take advantage of rising markets, while protecting your investments during market downturns.
