The Kenyan economy has been growing for the last five years reaching 5.9% in 2019.  According to the World Bank, this growth makes Kenya one of the fastest growing economies in Sub-Saharan Africa.

The World Bank projects that medium-term gross domestic product growth (GDP) will continue rise to 5.9% in 2020 and 6.0% in 2020 underpinned by private consumption, a pick-up in industrial activity and still strong performance in the services sector.

With the growth being witnessed, investment opportunities are at an all time high and with those opportunities successful investment companies have risen.

Wealth Management

According to Investopedia, wealth management is an investment advisory service that combines other financial services to address the needs of affluent clients. It is a consultative process whereby the advisor gleans information about the client's wants and tailors a bespoke strategy utilizing appropriate financial products and services.

Investment Management

Investopedia also defines investment management as the handling of financial assets and other investments - not only buying and selling them. Management includes devising a short- or long-term strategy for acquiring and disposing of portfolio holdings. It can also include banking, budgeting, and tax services and duties, as well.
