Fusion Capital, the issuer of Kenya’s first development real estate investment trust, has extended the investment window of the DREIT by 10 days from the 16th July to 26th of the same month.
The extension has been approved by the Capital Markets Authority so as to give more time to investors to invest, according to Fusion Capital.
Fusion Capital Group CEO, Luke Kinoti said: “As the pioneers of the D-REIT model on the continent, investors have requested for some additional time to pool resources and prepare their applications accordingly. As a matter of fact, we have had several meetings to enable fund managers to dissect and fully comprehend this unique investment instrument”.
The extension could be a sign of Poor subscription, according to Carol Musyoka on a comment on twitter account.
