How does it work?
  • Have a goal or target in mind and know your risk appetite/profile (What is the maximum drop (fall) in value you can endure on your savings in one year before considering to pull out your investment?)
  • How much time do you have to reach your goal (investment horizon)
  • Answering these two questions will then determine the best investment vehicle for you.
  • You can apply through our digital platform known as i-INVEST. For amounts less than KES 70,000 simply dial *480# on your mobile phone to open an account, follow the instructions and start saving today. Another option is filling in an application form at any of our Old Mutual Branches.
