Greetings!

I would like to welcome you all to the Britam East Africa Pension Summit 2018, on behalf of Britam Asset Managers (Kenya) Limited, here in Seychelles. Britam Asset Managers is a part of Britam Holdings Plc, a diversified financial services group.

Britam Asset Managers was incorporated in 2004 and offers asset management and investment services across a broad spectrum of asset classes for both institutional and retail clients. With Assets Under Management of KES 129 billion as at 31st December 2017, we feel we are well poised and well placed in the market to offer scale, strong investment opportunities and performance, backed up by world class service.

Last year, our holding company Britam Holdings Plc launched an asset management company in Uganda to extend its asset management offering in the region. I am glad to welcome the team from Uganda to this summit. Our theme this year, “THINK GLOBAL” – Trends in the Global Pension Industry, aims to give fresh perspectives on how to tackle challenges facing the pension industry, how to achieve sustainable pension returns as well as how to optimally position pension schemes to benefit from emerging global trends.

Currently, the industry in Kenya, and indeed East Africa is plagued by various challenges including a limited appreciation of alternative assets which has limited the allocation to alternative assets compared to other countries globally. The industry is also hampered by lack of regulation to allow for segmentation of schemes based on age profiles, not fully embracing technology, as well as inability to maximize value from property investments.

This summit will therefore provide the perfect platform to discuss these and other challenges and opportunities facing the East African pension industry, including how trustees can take advantage of technological advancements to remain relevant.

We an impressive list of speakers and experts to take you through the various topics at the conference, and I urge you to network, interact and exchange ideas on matters of mutual interest.

I take this opportunity to welcome you once more and to wish you well during your time on this beautiful island of Seychelles.
