A leading emerging markets investment banking firm, Crystal Capital & Investments Limited (CCI) has announced the launch of two new mutual funds that will offer Ghanaians more investment opportunities to earn higher returns which will enable them to plan appropriately towards their entrepreneurial goals.
The Mutual Funds: Crystal Entrepreneur Fund (EFund) and Crystal Wealth Fund (W-Fund) will be launched at an Initial Public Offering (IPO) at 5:00pm on Tuesday, 21st February, 2017 at the Atrium of the World Trade Center (WTC), Accra.
In a statement to the press, the Chief Executive Officer (C.E.O.) of Crystal Capital, Mr. Martin Ofori said that, “the EFund and the Wealth Fund have been designed to serve a current need in the market for innovative and flexible investment products that will give every Ghanaian real value. With markets in a near state of tumult and the fear that volatility might destroy returns in many parts of the market, running one Fund with a mandate to find value in one particular market or sliver of a market is not quite strategic. We have the dexterity to diversify investment funds to deliver optimum yield. He added, “At CCI, we identify value or the potential for value where others do not. We do not merely sell products and financial services – we form the right partnership with each and every client. This is important to us – to create value for our clients through ingenious value-add services like complimentary advisory sessions for asset owners and users.”
Interacting with the media, Mr. John Arkorful, the Executive Director of Finance at Crystal Capital stated that, “This is a good time to invest in collective investment products like the Crystal E-Fund and the Wealth Fund. They are low risk but provide higher returns. They are also managed by experienced Fund Managers to assure investors the safety of their investments. The returns on the investment are also tax exempt, which is an added advantage for investors. We encourage the General Public, especially upcoming entrepreneurs to attend the launch of these two Funds, learn more about investments and also take the needed steps to earn extra income.”
The EFund has been primarily designed for entrepreneurs, young people with entrepreneurial ambitions, as well as organizations that support entrepreneurial initiatives. The Fund protects the capital of investors by investing in a balanced portfolio that provides very good yield. Through the EFund, Crystal Capital hopes to help entrepreneurs to achieve their business dreams without the need for loans and also quicker than they would with just savings.
The Wealth Fund is designed for individuals and corporations who would like to make regular income on their investments at rates of return that are higher than those of savings. The Wealth Fund provides security and opportunities to create wealth at one’s own pace. It is ideal for investors looking to invest towards particular short to medium term goals or looking for regular income.
According to Officials of Crystal Capital, both the EFund and Wealth Fund are low-risk and have low start-up cost. For instance, Investors only need a minimum of GH¢100 to invest in the EFund during the IPO and can invest with as little incremental amount as GH¢20 afterwards. Similarly, a minimum of GH¢200 is required to start invest with the Wealth Fund at the I.P.O stage and GH¢50 is required afterwards.
Crystal Capital & Investments Limited promises some surprises and discounts for individuals and corporations that invest in the EFund and Wealth Fund during the launch on 21st February, 2017 at the Atrium, World Trade Center, Accra. The General Public is therefore invited to attend the launch for opportunities to maximize the value of their income.
