How to Top Up Sanlam Pesa+ using M-PESA

Sanlam Investments East Africa offers three unit trust of which Pesa+ provides the lowest risk for investors. Pesa+ is a money market fund similar to other popular offerings in the market such as those from CIC, UAP Old Mutual, Zimele and Britam just to mention a few.

Pesa+ investors have the option to deposit funds to their accounts either through Bank Deposits or through M-PESA.

The M-PESA option works by sending money Sanlam’s paybill number. Alternatively, investors can transfer the funds direct to the Sanlam Unit Trust account using Stanbic Bank’s paybill.

The difference between the two is that the Sanlam paybill attracts paybill charges whilst the bank paybill has no charges at the time of this writing. Using the bank paybill will however require one to inform Sanlam of the deposit unlike the default paybill which includes the member number. This is also the case when depositing funds to the CIC Money Market Fund using M-PESA.

Let’s take a look at both methods.
