Sanlam Collective Investments (SCI) was established in 1967 and is the longest standing Unit Trust management company in South Africa. The company is responsible for the administration of a suite of Sanlam Investments funds and also offers 3rd party administration services and co-naming capabilities. SCI is part of the broader Sanlam Group which began as a life insurance company established in 1918. SCI initiated steps in 2013 which aimed to improve their existing client servicing capability through a complex software development and integration project. Concerns about the quality and timing of delivery by the previous vendor warranted SCI to enlist the service of BBD to assist with the recovery of the project.
