NCBA launches suite of trustee services to safeguard collective solutions

NCBA Bank has today launched a suite of trustee services solutions under the theme “Safeguarding Collective Investments”. This comes after the bank obtained a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) trustee license from the Capital Markets Authority (CMA) in March 2024.

The trustees are appointed for various purposes, such as managing assets during bankruptcy, overseeing retirement plans or pensions, and handling assets on behalf of others.

“At NCBA, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive trustee services tailored to collective investment schemes which ensure secure and efficient management of assets. Our Trustee Services Solutions are designed to offer secure and effective management of collective investment schemes, reflecting our dedication to safeguarding investments and fostering sustainable growth,” said NCBA Group MD John Gachora.
