The OMIG Conference will be followed by another corporate milestone that will open even more possibilities to investors through a new identity. The UAP Old Mutual Group Est Africa will be rebranding to Old Mutual Group later in the week in Nairobi. A stakeholder celebration event will be held in Nairobi on Tuesday, May 17th.


As a responsible steward of asset management and a long-term investor in quality business, Old Mutual Investment Group (OMIG) continues unlocking possibilities in Africa through sound investing as an opportunity to gain a competitive business edge.

Over the years, the Group has grown to become one of the leading financial services companies offering a broad spectrum of financial solutions to retail and corporate customers across key markets in 14 countries.

The Group is part of the Old Mutual Limited, listed in South Africa and with operations in other countries such as Zimbabwe and Kenya. In East Africa, OMIG is the Asset Management arm of the UAP Old Mutual Group, specializing in Corporate and individual investments solutions.

Currently, it has operations in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, South Sudan, and Rwanda. It offers clients an all-inclusive range of financial services, including investment, insurance, banking, and savings.

UAP Old Mutual Group came into existence in 2015 following the acquisition of a majority shareholding by Old Mutual Group in UAP Holdings. This subsequently created the most extensive integrated financial services provided in East Africa, including a banking arm in Kenya through Faulu Microfinance bank.

The integration opened the doors for Old Mutual to continue the pursuit of delivering sustainable long-term returns for its clients. Its investment products support economic growth while allowing clients to tap into various markets’ limitless possibilities.

Throughout its operations, UAP Old Mutual Group takes proactive stewardship of investments by exercising proxy voting rights to push for better ESG performance. Its investment products support economic growth aligned with socially inclusive, low-carbon and resource-efficient outcomes.

Furthermore, clients gain exposure to renewable energy, land reform, affordable education, and gap housing through sound investment strategies through the Group’s private market affiliates. With a partnership mindset, this investment company strives to increase the size of the entire pie, not just its slice, to benefit every investor looking to scale.

To deliver on this promise and ensure clients continue reaping the economies of scale, the Group, from Monday, May 16th to Friday, May 20th, will be holding its annual corporate stakeholder conference in Capetown, South Africa, to unveil its portfolio for the future.

The conference themed ‘The Portfolio of The Future: Unlocking the Possibilities of Alternative Investments’ will feature pension fund trustees from various organizations, mostly OMIG Kenya Clients and Fund Administrators and Custodians within the Kenyan pension industry.

Discussions on alternative investment options for clients to create solutions for a sustainable future (Impact funds, Infrastructure and Agri Fund) will take precedence during the conference. The discussion is necessitated by the impact the Covid-19 has had on businesses over the past two years.

The onset of the pandemic in 2020 highlighted the increasing importance of well-diversified investment portfolios as traditional assets posted record low returns. The potential of alternative investments extends beyond enhancing portfolio returns for clients. They also give exposure to the real economy, enabling investments into socially impactful projects, creating jobs, and enabling access to essential services.

Therefore, through the OMIG conference, discussions on selecting suitable alternative investments will focus on helping clients take advantage of the remarkable post-pandemic economic evolution. Globally, the focus on ESG continues to increase exponentially, and non-traditional assets provide just the right opportunities for responsible investing.

The OMIG Conference will be followed by another corporate milestone that will open even more possibilities to investors through a new identity. The UAP Old Mutual Group Est Africa will be rebranding to Old Mutual Group later in the week in Nairobi. A stakeholder celebration event will be held in Nairobi on Tuesday, May 17th.

More details on the rebrand will be shared later. For questions and more information, you can reach out through omigclientservice@oldmutualkenya.com.
