Understand Your Credit Profile

Get access to a free credit dashboard and the help of a coach.

Sanlam provides you with a free tool to help you understand your credit profile. You can easily determine where you need to make changes in order to reach your financial goals. We also give you free access to a coach who will assist you in taking the necessary steps to improve your credit score – so you can grow your wealth.

Your credit profile will also show personalised offers for insurance, savings and lending products you qualify for, should you wish to purchase any.

How it Works

Your credit profile is a snapshot of your financial history, and your credit score is the rating given to you based on the number of credit accounts you have, your payment history, and other factors. By knowing what your current credit score is, and understanding your credit profile, you can work towards growing your wealth. With the insights provided by your monthly credit dashboard, you'll be able to:

  • See how much you are paying on your accounts each month
  • Track your account activity and interest rate payments
  • Check if you can consolidate your credit and free up cash flow
  • See if there is suspicious activity on your account
  • Speak to a coach
  • Explore a range of financial products suitable for you

There's never been a better time to understand your credit profile. Simply register to receive your free monthly credit dashboard.

Register in a few simple steps and get ready to navigate your way to an improved credit rating.

Why Use a Coach?

The same way that sportsmen and -women use a coach to encourage and motivate them, and to provide them with a fitness programme to achieve their personal best, so does a credit management coach guide and support clients who need to improve their credit profile and better their overall financial well-being – by decreasing their credit commitments and putting them in control of their finances again.
