PROVEN TRACK RECORD
We have actively invested in the NSE since the 1990’s. We manage portfolios with demonstrated returns that exceed the market.
Two ubiquitous features dot the semi-arid Kenyan plains: rocks and baobabs. Both are mwamba, in the Swahili and Kamba languages, respectively.
A rock is solid, unchanging, dependable. Similarly, a baobab is enduring and hardy, storing up water to get it through the driest of dry seasons. Together, the two evoke qualities that are the guiding principles of Mwamba Capital.
Consistently making the right investment decisions requires a unique combination of experience, knowledge, discipline, and patience. When you partner with Mwamba Capital, you put our expertise and 30+ years of experience to work for you.
Charles Mutiso is the principal at Mwamba Capital. He has invested at the NSE since 2005, generating a successful and proven investment track record. Charles has degrees in Math and Physics, and is currently developing and testing trading models. His other interests include machine learning, analytics and bees.
