Investing goes mobile. That’s what Cytonn Investment Management has literally done by eliminating the headache of paperwork and the bureaucracy that comes with it when investing.
The fast-growing investment company has invested heavily in technology to make its Money Market Fund easy to invest in and withdraw in a move that gives investors the power and freedom to move their money at the click of a button.
Investors now have to simply dial *809# to create a money market account in seconds and invest. Withdrawals below Ksh70,000 are also instant through M-Pesa. And what’s more, there are no limitations on how many times you can withdraw.
“We are now working to bring our money market fund to global standards… there is no reason why we should not offer investors the same features like a money market fund in developed markets,” says Cytonn Investments Senior Brand Manager Daniel Mainye.
The mobile technology has turned the Money Market Fund into some kind of current account but one that earns above-average returns. The average return over the last one year has been 11% per annum. It’s like a digital wallet that grows at 11%.
