The event seeks to share knowledge and viewpoints, foment a common understanding among different players in the investment sector, give providers of investment vehicles and services an intense opportunity to present what they offer, and to instil a saving and investment culture among the youth.

“Kenyans are enterprising, and given the right information and connections, they will invest right and prosper. In addition, opportunities for investments are diverse. What is lacking is adequate knowledge among the masses, and indeed potential investors. We invite you to join us in this initiative and showcase your investment products and services with the delegates,” reads a note on the conference.
