The Stanbic Equity Fund is a collective investment scheme that invests in a portfolio of equity securities across all the industries of the stock market. The object of the fund is to provide a medium whereby investors can obtain undivided participation in a diversified portfolio of equity investments. The equity fund offers the greatest potential for long-term growth and is a good choice for long-term goals.
The Stanbic Equity Fund is designed for individuals who have cash available to invest over the medium to long term i.e. 3-5 years. The fund effectively provides an investment opportunity for individuals who require long- term capital growth as well as providing investors with a good protection against inflation.
The fund is suitable for institutional investors who require undivided participation in a well-diversified portfolio of equity instruments. It is designed for institutions who require potentially higher returns over the medium to long-term.
Individual investor's funds are pooled together to purchase a portfolio of equity securities. It provides you with the opportunity to purchase a well-diversified spread of equity securities in a recognized stock exchange both locally and offshore. An investor receives units based on the value of the underlying securities and the amount invested. For example, if on a particular day, the price of a unit is Kshs.100 (computed by dividing the Net Asset Value by the total number of units), an investor investing KShs.200,000.00 will receive 2,000 units.
Clients are able to withdraw funds at short notice, with no minimum 'lock-in' investment periods or penalty fees.
Experts experienced in the investment arena are managing your money on a daily basis and ensuring your peace of mind.
If your risk tolerance and return expectations change, as an investor you are allowed to transfer (switch) to another unit trust fund managed by Stanbic Investment Management Services (E.A) Limited using your accumulated fund value as your capital to invest in the new fund of your choice.

You can also share in the rewards of the stock market without running the risks of direct investment. This is because if you were to invest directly into the stock market you may encounter high transaction costs, lack the investment expertise including the risk of non-diversification.
