So… I have some news and a lot to be thankful for. Volition Cap recently announced its SEC asset management license. This is surreal to me.
When I was younger, banks and asset management companies were hallowed financial institutions. I never thought I would be CEO of one someday.
The last few days have been a whirlwind. Although our company got the nod from regulators since last year, what many don’t know is this – we received the license because of a new fund management model we created.
For the first time in Africa, we showed it was possible to evolve a homegrown model that leveraged local cooperatives and remittance investing. In a few weeks, I will be sharing our research white paper. It will demonstrate the sheer scale of what we’ve envisioned.
I am currently exhausted but in a fulfilling kind of way. And in that spirit of fulfillment, I’d like you all to do me a favour. Remind the people close to you that honest & hardworking people still have a place in this world. We can still win.
