NAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 27 – Cytonn Investments Services has expanded its services to Rwanda and Uganda as part of its regional growth plan.

The Investments services company has in the past fortnight held very high profile Investor forums in Kigali and Kampala attracting hundreds of individual and institutional investors keen on growing their investment portfolios. It also explored partnership investment opportunities in the region and areas of partnerships with Cytonn.

“At Cytonn Investments, we view the Eastern African region as one integrated market and therefore we aim to make our services available to all investors in each of the countries in the region. These forums in Rwanda and Uganda are great knowledge-share platform even for us as we plan to roll out services that are unique to this market,” said Edwin H. Dande, Managing Partner and Chief Executive Officer.

Held at Kigali Serena, the Investment Forum in Rwanda was graced by Kenya’s Ambassador to Rwanda John Mwangemi who lauded the initiative pointing out that it will help faster integration of the East Africa Community countries’ economies.

“We in government, in East Africa, are committed to creating an enabling investment environment because we are fully aware that this will help accelerate regional integration. I would therefore like to congratulate Cytonn Investments for venturing into Rwanda, a country that features very highly in global indexes as a place with great ease of doing business,” said Mwangemi.

Cytonn Investments has a rich track record of offering investors access to high yield investment grade products in real estate and private equity ventures. Cytonn has also committed to training at least 10 Rwandan and Ugandan nationals each year as part of its internships in investments analysis and management of real estate and private equity portfolios.

The company has also been connecting the East Africa Diaspora in the US and providing a platform for them to invest back at home.

Cytonn Diaspora, an affiliate company, recently opened offices in Washington D.C. The launch was a culmination of month-long investment road shows in the U.S. where the Cytonn Diaspora teams held investment sessions with East Africans living in Atlanta, Dallas, Maryland, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Boston.
