Report Created BY: D.Gaitha Creative Studio www.dgaitha.com


WORDS FROM C.E.O Regal Africa would like to introduce you to the best short term investment solution. We recommend that our clients should set up a money market fund, so as to start saving for a rainy day. This savings funds should typically cover 3-6 months of your monthly expenses, which will be a good cushion to have just incase something happens to you or your loved ones. A money market fund is probably one of the best places to keep your emergency fund, not only are your funds liquid (you can withdraw and get the funds in your bank account in 2-4 days depending on the fund manager) The money market funds are also not accessible through an ATM like a savings account, therefore the chances of using the funds for impulse buying is reduced. The best thing about the money market fund, is that even though it is liquid, it gives you a much higher return that regular savings accounts and is more flexible and most likely has better interest than a fixed income account at your bank. Another benefit, is that you do not have to pay back interest if you plan to withdraw your funds unlike in the case of a Sacco. Money market funds are suitable for customers whose investment horizon is short term (1-12 months) or if you are a very conservative investor and you would like to have your funds in an investment vehicle that guarantees that you do not lose your principal investment. BENEFITS Security: The Money Market fund has capital guarantee and the funds are held in custody by a licensed custodian bank and are thus separated from the fund manager who manages the investments. Efficiency: Quick and easy access to funds when needed. Interest: Interest is compounded and is calculated on a daily basis and statements sent to you monthly. Flexibility: The period to invest is not fixed or contractual. Top ups: Investor can top up anytime as they wish and we recommend 10% contribution monthly if you are a salaried employee and for those who are self employed, we recommend you to invest at least 10% of your compensation. Professional managed: The professional money managers are able to negotiate better terms than you and they are then able to transfer the better returns to the unit holders of the money market fund. Performance: Historically the money market funds have performed better than banks short term savings offerings. Once you are ready to start investing, you can speak to one of our Personal Finance Advisors and we will guide you on the process to start investing. We look forward to guiding you on your wealth journey. Warm Regards

Q2 2017 MONEY MARKET ANALYSIS The money market remained relatively stable during the quarter with the only concern to investors being the level of inflation which continued to inch upwards to close the quarter at () compared to 10.28% as at the end of Q1’17. Treasury bill yields continued to inch downwards gradually as increased liquidity in the money markets continued to push interest rates downwards. The Central Bank of Kenya also maintained its low interest rate stance by maintaining the CBR at 10% despite inflation maintaining above the Central Bank target, noting that increasing the rate would pose a risk to economic growth. The yield on the 91, 182 and 364 day T-bills declined to 8.310%, 10.314% and 10.868% from 8.719%, 10.525% and 10.914% as the end of Q1’2017 respectively.

Based on the analysis on money market annual average returns, the top 5 funds which offer the best return has remained unchanged over the review period indicating that they offer consistently good returns based on the market conditions.

Money Market Outlook for Q3’ 2017 From the CBK’s actions, short-term interest rates are expected to remain within their current level with some little room to ease further despite inflation remaining a serious concern. We urge investors to invest their cash holdings through money market funds as they are expected to offer the best possible return for any cash investments when compared to other stand-alone cash investments.

Q2 2017 EQUITY MARKET ANALYSIS The equities market reversed the negative trend observed in the first quarter of the year to close the second quarter in the positive region. The NSE 20 Share and All Share Index were up by 15.9% and 17.2% respectively during the quarter. On a year-to-date basis, the NSE 20 and All Share Index were up 13.2% and 14.7% respectively as renewed interest by local institutional investors pushed up share prices. Turnover was up by 21% when compared to Q1’2017 to close at USD 433.3m. However, foreign investors turned net sellers with USD 21.62m worth of outflows compared to USD 16.67m of net inflows in Q1’2017.

EQUITIES FUNDS 12 MONTHS ANALYSIS The graph below shows equities funds return for 5 of the best performing funds in the past 12 months.

The equity funds of Apollo , CBA Capital, Nabo Africa and Amana Capital are the most consistent in terms of performance over the review period. Apollo’s equity fund outperforms the other funds by a huge margin due to the fact that it was launched in 2016 when the market was in a bear and an uptick in share prices in 2017 has seen it greatly benefit.

Stock Market Q3’2017 Outlook We expect to see reduced momentum in the stock market in Q3’2017 due to the August General elections as investors wait on the outcome. Investors with a long time horizon have an opportunity to increase their investment in shares as the market still remains discounted and indications show that we may be out of the TH previous two year bear run.
