In 2014, Edwin Dande and four other colleagues at British American Asset Managers (Britam Holdings #ticker:BRIT) walked out of the door and set up their own shop. They called it Cytonn Investments. The wise men at Britam were livid, so they sued.
Meanwhile, Cytonn grew into some financial juggernaut, focusing on alternative investment solutions to high net worth individuals and local and global institutional investors focusing on real estate, private equity and structured solutions and advisory.
Edwin attended the prestigious Wharton College for his MBA in finance and later made his bones at Lehman Brothers and Bank of America before coming back home.
A prim and proper man, he met JACKSON BIKO for breakfast at the Nairobi Serena.
