How to invest in real properties and stocks using Ndovu online
Online investment options abound but few of those specialise in providing investments for real properties and stocks. Most of the online investments options that have mushroomed in the past decade tend to focus on cryptocurrencies, but a lot of people still prefer to invest in the trusted real estate, trusted stocks that are traded in stock/securities exchanges, government bonds, etc. It is for this reason that Ndovu exists, an online-based investment consultancy company that has promised to both guide and manage your investment portfolio. So, if you desire to have your investment done for you while you sit easy at home or in the office, these are the steps that you need to follow:

Letting Ndovu manage your portfolio might be a good call to make. This is because the team behind Ndovu are people who have a track record in managing investments from across the globe, and have the necessary expertise and experience to know exactly the type of investment options that perfectly match a particular investment personality. For example, Ms. Radhika Bhachu who is the CEO of Ndovu is an investment specialist with 11 years of experience advising global top 500 companies. She previously worked in the UK for BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager. The CCO of Ndovu is Mr. Ro Nyangeri who is the former Head of Strategy at the Nairobi Securities Exchange, whereas Mr. Gianpaolo De Biase who is the company’s CTO is a serial entrepreneur who has built and scaled digital products in different markets around the globe.
Ndovu was launched at the beginning of last month with a promise to be simple (no financial jargon), provide capabilities for investors to watch the performances of their investments, and be able to buy and sell funds with jus a few taps on their phones (or web browsers). ““Our idea was born out of our passion to improve financial lives across Africa. Our vision is to provide every African, regardless of income level or financial knowledge, with the right tools to grow their wealth. We believe in educating our people on how to make their money work for them will bring us one step closer to reducing poverty on the continent,” said Ms. Radhika Bhachu during the launch.
Ndovu is a platform that can be trusted, not just because they have been funded by venture capitalists such as the 4DX Ventures, Plug and Play Tech Center, Future Africa, and Oui Capital, but also because they are under the strict regulation of Capital Markets Authority. With the trust assured, Ndovu aims at reaching out to the wider Kenyan market who have little to no investment literacy so that they too can reap the benefits of formal investment guided by investment experts. This was exemplified by Mr. Ro during the launch of Ndovu when he said mentioned that investing $100 per month for 10 years in a bank account paying 2% per annum would earn the investor $13,200, whereas investing the same amount for the same duration using Ndovu into the S&P 500 fund will earn the investor $23,500.
“At Ndovu, we are playing a key role in financial inclusion by opening up the previously-gated financial markets to all. We are also demystifying investments by breaking down financial jargon with an easy-to-use platform” said De Biase.
Ndovu has won several awards, including a development grant from Zilliqa, the blockchain project that pioneered sharding, a technology that splits platform infrastructure into several interconnected networks to support more transactions. Ndovu also won first-place in the She Loves Tech competition (2021), and led the pack at Princeton in Africa’s New Venture Competition (2020). This is in addition to
being selected for the highly-competitive Google for Startups Accelerator in 2021, the same year it received recognition from the Co-Creation Hub for the work that it is doing to empower women
