Tech-driven, growth-oriented Afrinvest soars in wealth management

In a world where technology is advancing fast, financial institutions are recognising the role of technology in business growth and profit maximisation. As a result, an asset management company with more than 20 years’ experience in collation, consolidation, reconciliation and portfolio management, has embraced technology in its operations.

What began as Securities Transactions and Trust Company (Nigeria) Limited in 1995 has developed into a hub of reference for financial corporations in the country. 

Asset management professionals are becoming authorities in their fields as they use cutting-edge technology to keep up with changing customer demands, stricter regulations and project expansion. This enables them to assign tasks digitally, as well as boost productivity and efficiency.

The way technology is used in asset management is fundamentally changing how goods and services are distributed around the world. Therefore, to deliver better client experience at scale and increase client acquisition and retention, the most successful asset managers of the future will need to embrace technology in asset management distribution.

Asset managers have understood the trend to serve their clients better, while continuing to meet rising expectations for levels of individualised service to succeed in a more competitive future operating environment.

Asset management companies must, therefore, use technology and a process to continuously innovate to meet financial sector demands and increase wealth.

For this reason, a renowned asset management firm that holds a portfolio manager licence from Nigeria’s Securities and Exchange Commission provides top-notch asset management services to a variety of high networth and widely affluent individual clients. 

Through equity-focused, debt-focused and hybrid unit trust investment schemes, the firm provides investors with direct, professionally-managed access to the Nigerian capital market through its subsidiary, Afrinvest Asset Management Limited.

Given the importance of technology in its operations, the firm recently launched a digital investment app; a financial technology solution that helps customers do the most by integrating banking, wealth management and brokerage needs into a single platform.

It employs a proprietary factor model that identifies securities by ranking them according to a number of important factors, taking into account that technical analysis is still a valid part of its decision-making process and is necessary to ensure long-term returns. These include technical performance, fundamentals and other qualitative aspects like management history and governmental policy.

Afrinvest’s Group Managing Director, Ike Chioke, stated recently at the unveiling of Optimus in Lagos, “Our risk management policy ensures that we prioritise asset class diversification and execute clients’ transactions in accordance with global best practices. We have built, specifically for you, a personalised digital wealth management neobank platform that provides bespoke and innovative financial services to help you reach the peak in your finances.”
