“As we expect to roll out our first unit trust over the next few weeks, we are targeting an AUM of GH¢10 million to GH¢20 million in the first two years as we advise clients to take hold of their future by investing in the fund. Our focus will be on the fixed income market to generate good returns for the fund,” she said.
