National wealth management and financial advice firm Sanlam has launched a new initiative offering free virtual consultations with financial services experts.
Sanlam on Demand offers no-obligation virtual meetings on topics covering planning for retirement, getting finances in order, inheritance planning, protection and managing investments.
The meetings will last around 30 minutes and users will be offered a same-day call back with a named Sanlam financial planner or portfolio manager.
Sanlam Wealth Management division CEO John White said Sanlam on Demand was developed as a direct result of the "new normal" following the impact of Covid-19.
"Giving people face-to-face access to the person managing their money is an important part of our service, and in developing Sanlam on Demand we were determined to retain all the positives of our proposition, but do so in a virtual and socially-distanced manner," he said.
"In these uncertain times, it is essential people have their finances in order and understand their levels of financial resilience. Sanlam on Demand is designed to provide exactly this, helping people with their financial plan and enabling them to look forward with confidence."
