As we expect to rollout our first unit trust over the next few weeks, we are targeting an AUM of GHS 10million to GHS 20million in the first 2years as we advise clients to take hold of their future by investing in the fund. Our focus will be on the fixed income market to generate good returns for the fund,” said Abena Brigidi, the CEO of NIMED Capital Limited.

Ms Brigidi has worked on putting NIMED Lifetime Unit Trust as a good investment vehicle for both retail and institutional clients. This move will deepen the competition in Ghana’s mutual fund industry.
