Cowrywise and Afrinvest Asset Management Limited have partnered to offer Nigerians access to investment opportunities with as low as N100. Cowrywise users will now be able to invest in mutual funds including the Afrinvest Plutus Fund, Afrinvest Equity Fund and the Nigeria International Debt Fund.
This partnership comes on the back of a joint commitment to deepen financial inclusion and demystify investments in Nigeria. With the introduction of Afrinvest’s products on the Cowrywise platform, our users can make quick, easy and well-informed investment decisions. Furthermore, our mutual funds’ platform boasts a risk assessment process that guarantees the proper matching of investors with the most suitable funds; based on their risk tolerance and investment objectives.
In speaking to the primary objective of this collaboration, Ola Belgore Managing Director, Afrinvest Asset Management Ltd., said, “Over the years, we have worked tirelessly to deliver innovative investment products and services that cater to investors at various income levels. Our goal is to prove that no matter who you are, where you come from or what you do, we have the right product for you. We are, therefore, excited about this partnership with Cowrywise because it gives us a unique opportunity to reach the thousands who are taking bold steps in the right direction towards financial responsibility.”
Our CEO, Razaq Ahmed, CFA, had this to say of the value of this partnership, “Our partnership with Afrinvest is a significant stride in our efforts to boost active retail participation in the capital market to 10 million Nigerians by 2025. We are, therefore, proud to once again deliver affordable and profitable investment products that will deliver immense value to Nigerian investors. We are eliminating the barriers to entry by allowing every Nigerian to take advantage of profitable investment options with as little as N100; an opportunity that would have otherwise been unattainable. We are saying come one, come all.”
In keeping with the goal for financial inclusion, investors in any of the Afrinvest products on the Cowrywise platform will enjoy the same benefits as any other type of investor including capital preservation and income generation as applicable.
