Hisa, a leading investment startup specialising in financial technology, has announced significant leadership changes. Erick Asuma, co-founder and CEO, recently stepped down from his position, paving way for Eric Jackson, who was previous leading the product and innovation team.
Eric Jackson brings a wealth of experience to his new role as CEO of Hisa. With a proven track record in the technology sector, Mr Jackson has a deep understanding of using technology to solve everyday challenges. His previous executive roles and successful entrepreneurial ventures with MediaPal and Nano Digital have positioned him as the ideal candidate to lead Hisa’s next phase of growth and innovation.
“I am honoured to continue to drive the Hisa mission as its new CEO and build upon the solid foundation established by Erick Asuma,” said Mr Jackson. “Hisa is at the forefront of revolutionizing investment solutions, and I am thrilled to guide the company in its next phase of growth.”
Mr Jackson said he will strive to enhance Hisa’s technological capabilities, expand its market presence, and continue delivering value to clients.
Erick Asuma was instrumental in setting up Hisa and shaping its vision since its inception in October 2020. With his leadership, the company has achieved remarkable milestones, including obtaining necessary regulatory approvals and establishing strategic partnerships.
“I am immensely proud of the journey we have embarked on at Hisa. It has been an incredible experience leading such a talented and dedicated team,” said Mr Asuma. “As I step down from my role as CEO, I am confident that Hisa will continue its path to success under the guidance of Eric Jackson. His expertise and vision align perfectly with the company’s goals, and I have no doubt that Hisa’s future is bright.”
The transition in leadership comes at an exciting time for Hisa, as the company is experiencing substantial growth and increasing demand for its investment services. The company now has over 25,000 registered investors who have traded over $2 million (about Ksh280 million) across different asset classes including Kenyan stocks, US Stocks and US ETFs.
“Looking ahead, we are excited to bring forth a new wave of investment products,” said Mr Jackson. “Within the next month, we will be introducing an array of options including savings accounts, money market funds, and even the ability to trade leveraged products. These additions will provide our customers with greater flexibility and opportunities for growth in their investment portfolios.”
