Home / The Wealth Edge Endowment Plan


A plan that offers security and stability in uncertain markets. That helps you navigate risk and enables financial resilience.


A tax-efficient investment solution with all the benefits of other endowment plans, but with some extra special advantages.

Security and stability

In a volatile world, it’s more important than ever to navigate risk and to be financially resilient. That’s why we’re proud to introduce the Sanlam Wealth Edge Endowment Plan – a tax-efficient investment solution with all the benefits of other endowment plans, but with some extra special advantages.

Additional 8%

Get an incredible head start with a special 8% boost.


Protect investments against potential market downturns with an optional guarantee.


An innovative plan that rewards you with a loyalty bonus after five years.

♦ It is important to note that the fees and charges are deducted from the endowment plan by selling units. This reduces the number of units in the plan. The capital value of an investment is calculated by multiplying the number of units owned with the unit price, so even where a unit price is guaranteed, the capital value of the investment may decline if the charges deducted within the plan exceed the investment growth.

Who should Invest?

The Sanlam Wealth Edge Endowment plan could be best suited to investors who:

  • want access to financial markets and understand the associated investment risks.
  • are looking for a five-year investment option and do not anticipate needing access to the capital during this period.
  • may prefer not to make decisions about the selection of investment funds and the management thereof, but to leave that to Sanlam Multi Manager, by investing in risk-profiled solution funds.
  • may want to select the underlying investment funds in collaboration with their intermediary, from a range carefully selected by the Glacier research team from leading asset managers in South Africa.
  • want the option of adding a unit price guarantee on one or more of their selected investment funds to limit capital losses during market downturns.
  • have a marginal tax rate greater than 30%.
