Sanlam Investments has hired Teboho Makhabane to support and further integrate ESG and Impact investing into its investment strategies. The appointment is part of Sanlam Investments’ vision of becoming Africa's premier sustainable investor.

Teboho joins from Edge Growth Ventures, where she developed meaningful experience in investment into private businesses under commercial mandates that sought social and environmental impact. Earlier in her career, she spent time as an equity analyst and at the Bertha Centre, researching and evaluating impact investment strategies across the continent, assessing the extent of their social and developmental impact.

Makhabane says she is driven by making a lasting impact in society. "It is a privilege to have an opportunity to help direct investment capital towards addressing the most pressing social and environmental issues in our country. I look forward to being part of building a sustainable future for generations to come."

She will support Sanlam Investments’ Alternative investment teams to deliver on the ESG and impact promise to clients by overseeing the implementation of ESG and impact measurement and management processes across our impact range such as Investors’ Legacy Range and the new Sustainable Infrastructure Fund.

Todd Micklethwaite, Head of Strategy and Impact at Sanlam Investments’ Alternatives business says, "Besides her technical abilities, what drew us to Teboho is her passion and empathy for people, our country and social justice issues, and her desire to make a real, sustainable difference."
