The newly acquired money market fund license empowers the start-up to primarily invest in short-term financial instruments such as treasury bills and fixed deposits. This move positions the firm among the existing 39 money market funds managed by 36 collective investment schemes (CIS).

Money market funds, a popular choice among retail investors due to their attractive returns and accessibility, are a significant component of unit trust schemes. The unit trusts sector, overseen by the CMA, saw its assets under management rise to Sh215 billion by the end of 2023, up from Sh161 billion the previous year.
