KENYA, MAY 2018 — Cytonn Asset Managers Limited (CAML) has entered into a conditional agreement to acquire all the issued shares of Seriani Asset Managers Limited (Seriani), a fund management company in Kenya.
The acquisition of Seriani is subject to various conditions including regulatory approval from the Competition Authority and the Capital Markets Authority of Kenya.
Seriani is a client-focused fund management company based in Nairobi Kenya, licensed by the Capital Markets Authority.
The firm operates as an independent entity with the objective of delivering superior investment returns to their clients.
“This strategic acquisition of Seriani is meant to accelerate our entry into the regulated investments products market as Seriani already has three registered Collective Investments Schemes offering a Money Market Fund, a Balanced Fund, and an Equity Fund. This will save us the amount of time it takes to go to market with offerings for retail investors.” said Maurice Oduor, Principal Officer, Cytonn Asset Managers Limited.
“Our aim is to deliver to our clients above market average superior risk adjusted returns, through allocation to alternative markets, which has historically shown the capacity to deliver attractive investment returns,” added Maurice.
Seriani’s capability and dedication to offering unrivalled fund management service compliments CAML’s operating style, which includes offering Collective Investments Schemes, Pension Fund Management and Real Estate Investments Solutions to Global and Local Institutional Investors, High Net Worth Investors, and Retail Investors.
CAML is the regulated arm of Cytonn Investments Managements Plc, which offers among others, real estate investments to global and local institutional investors, high net worth investors, and retail investors.
