Cytonn Investment is primarily focused on offering alternative investment solutions to institutional investors, individual high net-worth investors and diaspora investors. Among the sectors they invest in include: real estate, financial services, education and renewable energy.

According to Cytonn, the secret behind their meteoric success is investing in and growing their employees. Among the incentives employees get include training opportunities and company share ownership.

Students were encouraged to pursue professional certifications to add value to their degree certificates and enhance their marketability. They further encouraged them to get the much needed experience by volunteering their services during the school holidays. This according to the experienced employees goes a long way in making a huge difference.
