Sanlam Benchmark Survey

Thought leadership through fact-based insight

The annual Sanlam Benchmark™ Survey is one of the most referenced research papers in the retirement fund industry. Our main objective for the research is to provide insights which stimulate conversation, create meaningful opportunities for further engagement with industry stakeholders and ultimately help effect a positive financial outcome in retirement for South Africans.

2020 Benchmark™

The impact of COVID-19 has dramatically altered the state of our nation and shifted the landscape of employee benefits. Decision-makers require objective research-based insights to make sense of the present and to navigate retirement fund members and employees through a rising tide of financial uncertainty. Since 1981, the Sanlam Benchmark research has provided such insights to South Africa’s retirement funding community with a view to empowering stakeholders with data to guide decisions. At Sanlam we are taking the lead in responding to changing market forces by engaging stakeholders in the retirement fund industry. This special edition of the Sanlam Benchmark reflects on how corporates and retirement funds are coping with the impact of COVID-19 and their ability to remain financially resilient in a tough economic environment.

The insights gained from the research will be shared at the virtual Sanlam Benchmark Webinar on 8 July from 10h30 to 12h00.
