Strategic Relationship

Cameron Hume and Sanlam form a strategic relationship.

Cameron Hume will bring expertise in global fixed income investment management to Sanlam, and Sanlam will provide routes to market, capability and capital.

Cameron Hume has issued new shares to allow Sanlam UK Limited to acquire a 20% equity stake, and Robert Roux, chief operating officer of Sanlam Investment Management, will join the Cameron Hume board.

Says Roux: “We are very impressed with the capability we have seen in Cameron Hume, and can see many opportunities to use that capability within the Sanlam group. Although the relationship will initially focus on Sanlam UK Limited, it will also improve Sanlam’s global fixed income investment offering to our South African clients.”

Christian Torkington, director of Cameron Hume, says: “We are very pleased with the way that our relationship with Sanlam has developed over the last year and are delighted to be taking this very significant step together”.

In 2013, Sanlam Asset Management (Ireland) Limited appointed Cameron Hume, on behalf of Sanlam Universal Funds plc, as an investment manager to the Sanlam Global Bond Fund. This further development will broaden the relationship, and Cameron Hume will provide investment management services and expertise on a non-exclusive basis to other Sanlam businesses.
