BlueStar Business Conference 2018

19 – 20 October 2018
Cape Town International Convention Centre 2 (CTICC2)

In honour of our landmark centenary, we will be hosting a very special BlueStar Conference in the beautiful city of Cape Town, where it all started.

Our rich 100-year history reflects countless firsts, and many successes. Since 1918, Sanlam has been a pioneering force in creating wealth for clients, with an advice-driven approach – and a strong intermediary force – at its core.

An achievement we remain particularly proud of is the introduction of the BlueStar business model in 2009. Today BlueStar businesses, and the innovative variations thereof, comprise over 1200 advisers and continue to contribute immensely to our success. These BlueStar models have shown significant growth, and continue to attract intermediaries wanting to develop their practices and become business owners.

At SPF Distribution, we are very honoured to have the opportunity to support so many advisers as they grow their practices into fully-fledged, sustainable businesses.
