I have done a bit of reading on Mansa-X fund by Standard Investment Bank and I liked what I read BUT the Writeup is by SIB themselves so it will only have juicy marketing info.

I would like to hear from Wazuans who have invested with them focusing on:-

1) Actual annual returns over the years.

2) How they breakdown costs due from you.

3) Any hidden costs.

4) Withdrawing from the fund - ease/difficulty,process, costs etc.

Any other relevant information.
Never count on making a good sale. Have the purchase price be so attractive that even a mediocre sale gives good returns.

Let's hope this time round a few people who have invested with them will come across the thread.

It is true what you said earlier, most of the info about Mansa-X available online is sponsored content and needs to be verified by another party.
I also hope someone who has invested can share the experience and finer details.

This is what I've gathered so far about Mansa-X fund from online sources;

  1. SIB was licensed in December 2018 as the first Online Forex Trading Money Manager in Kenya, by the CMA. The fund was launched in January 2019 and closed at $3 million in 2019.

  2. Aims to attract more retail investors to its foreign exchange fund and grow it to $100 million in 2020.

  3. It is not a guaranteed fund and returns are not guaranteed.
    Minimum amount of Sh250,000 for at least six months.

  4. An initial fee of five per cent of the amount invested and an annual management fee of five per cent. The management fee is waived in the first year.

  5. If the fund makes a return above 25 per cent (hurdle rate), then it charges a fee of 10 per cent of the extra return.


The H1 Mansa-X fund fact sheet is available here as a pdf.

I have invested in MansaX. They are kind of quick in account opening unlike other investment funds.( all online). The account numbers too looks Kind of simple considering the massive minimum amount. Account number Like 000123, 000124,000125 lacks confidence in this era. Just under a month “investor” . Not much to share.

Thank you for sharing.


I believe the account numbers are simple since they have few customers. (I think in the neighbourhood of 2,000)

The fund has just clocked in 6 quarters since inception and all the quarters registered positive returns. I believe more time is required to judge the fund.

Please share your when you clock 6 months.

Well, at the end of the day mansa-x is forex and commodities trading. Determine for yourself whether a global economic collapse is ahead, and then act accordingly.

I'm not an advocate of handing over my money to someone else as their return (commission charges, etc) is assured and yours isn't. But my so-called "financial adviser" from SIB brokerage section has been urging me to "spread my risks by putting in some money in MansaX" because he reckons that my portfolio is highly concentrated on equities. I asked him for his statement of account to backup his claim of "standing to earn upto 24%", a request he did not take too kindly. (I always ask all solicitors for this kind of information, including Cytonn's).
@PKimani (of the Cytonn fame), you say that you have passion for forewarning potential investors; do you have any due diligence on this one?

I'm not an advocate of handing over my money to someone else so that they can earn a fixed commission. But my so-called "financial adviser" from SIB brokerage section has been urging me to "spread my risks by putting in some money in Mansa" because he reckons that my portfolio is highly concentrated on equities. I asked him for his statement of account to backup his claim of "standing to earn upto 24%", a request he did not take too kindly. (I always ask all solicitors for this kind of information, including Cytonn's advances).

Our very own PK is an expert on matters Cytonn only, which I think is not particularly a bad thing.
