“We are always looking to expand our offering while focusing on making investing an easy and straightforward process. We consider the partnership with EGM Securities as part of that mandate. We want to offer our clients additional options and exposure when it comes to investment vehicles. Since EGM Securities is regulated by the Capital Markets Authority of Kenya and Genghis has sophisticated clients willing to explore new asset classes for attractive returns, a partnership between our two companies is a natural fit.”
Mr Kiraka further said: “To demonstrate our ability to swiftly deliver on client and market demand during the Covid-19 pandemic, our Product and Development teams added some of the most sought after global stocks to our offering such as Facebook, Amazon and Alphabet, as well as numerous global airline and oil stocks.

As well as biotech upstarts that are regularly in the news like Amgen, Vertex and Regeneron, a leading science and technology company working on an experimental antibody treatment for Covid-19.
“EGM Securities provides investors with the opportunity to be part of this modern medical gold rush and many other trading opportunities.
“We are very pleased to now partner with Genghis to extend the opportunity to a wider client base, grow revenue streams and offer access to global markets by partnering with a large company that is heavily regulated and carries deep commitment and expertise.”
