The forum served as a platform for the investment firm to celebrate the ongoing successful partnership with Taaleri, its institutional investor, while also providing an opportunity for its clients to interact directly with The Cytonn Board and Taaleri.
“This forum is meant to celebrate the great milestone we have had in our relationship with Taaleri.
“It will be a platform to get to know what we are doing as Cytonn, The Board and Taaleri as well as get to respond to any questions our clients may have around the firm’s governance,” Cytonn’s CEO Edwin H. Dande stated during the forum.
Echoing his sentiments, the Board’s chairman and Vice Chancellor at Embu University Prof. Daniel M. Njiru stated that the Taaleri had invested Ksh2 Billion in Cytonn’s real estate projects and were now looking to purchase 20% of Cytonn during their IPO.
He further divulged, “The listing of Cytonn will only serve to increase our levels of governance, risk management, disclosure and transparency. As a Board, we are supporting Management on the listing, and would like to congratulate them for taking the firm to these heights.”
Prof. Njiru also introduced members of the various Boards at Cytonn, which are The Cytonn Group Board, Cytonn Asset Managers Limited (CAML) Board, Cytonn Hospitality Board, the Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) Boards and The Cytonn Education Board.
On his part, Taaleri Africa Team representative, Kati Salo, reaffirmed the Cytonn – Taaleri partnership.
“As a Risk Manager, I am confident about the risk position of the firm and I can sleep well knowing that my investments are in good hands,” she remarked.
