Anthem advised Sanlam Investments on its loan to Atlas Mara

Anthem Advisory advised Sanlam Africa Credit Investments Limited on the structuring and execution of its recent investment in Atlas Mara, the financial services holding company listed on the London Stock Exchange.

With more than R400 billion under management, Sanlam Investments is one of South Africa’s largest asset management companies. The firm has nearly 100 years’ experience on the continent and a presence in 13 African countries.

Atlas Mara holds controlling or significant stakes in banking operations in seven sub-Saharan African countries, including Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Tanzania, Mozambique, Rwanda and Nigeria.

We are delighted to have worked with the Sanlam team in Cape Town and Johannesburg on closing this important transaction. The structured credit facility marked Anthem’s sixth corporate finance deal in Africa in the past year and demonstrates our further commitment to the region.
