In March 2017, the Zimnat Group got a makeover to showcase its connection with the Sanlam Group. Back in 2015, Sanlam Emerging Markets (SEM), a subsidiary of Sanlam Limited, purchased a 40% stake in the Zimnat Group. This exciting partnership has propelled Zimnat to new heights, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds!

Tinashe Muyambo, the CEO of the Zimnat Group, stated that over the past 76 years, our company has faced various challenges. However, we have remained strong and committed to protecting our clients’ interests. Our response to these challenges has been to focus on delivering excellent customer service while upholding strong ethics and integrity, which are fundamental to the Zimnat Group.
