Can I invest monthly or top up my investment?
Yes you can! 😁 We actually encourage that you do. If you are interested in investing monthly we will let you know what the process is like based on the investment you select. Some investments do not offer automatic top-ups or monthly deposits.

I am in diaspora & do not have a KRA PIN or Kenyan Bank account. Can I still invest?
Yes 👍🏾 If you are in the diaspora and don't have a KRA PIN or Kenyan Bank account you can fill in a client form instead. All forms you need are presented to you during our seamless on-boarding.

I already have a broker, will investing in bonds through Africa’s Pocket affect that in anyway?
No! To invest in Hazina you will need to nominate Faida Investment Bank as one of your brokers by filling out an ATS Form. This form maps a CBK CDS account under a broker. You can nominate up to 5 brokers. This will not affect your portfolio with your current broker.

You will find the ATS form as part of the registration process

I want to invest with a partner, can we create a joint account?
Yes you can! 😁 There can be up to 4 people under one account. In order to create a joint account all parties would need to:

  • Fill and sign the all forms.
  • Share KYC documents of all account holders
  • All forms you need are presented to you during our seamless on-boarding.

Can we invest as a company?
If you are registered, yes! 😁 We will ask for company KYC (e.g. certificates of registration, Memorandum and Articles of Association, proof that signatories are allowed to sign on behalf of the company etc.) To do this you will need to;

  • Fill and sign the all forms.
  • Share KYC documents of all authorized signatories

All forms you need are presented to you during our seamless on-boarding.

I have a CDS CBK account but it is dormant, what do I do?
To activate your dormant CDS CBK account you need to contact CDSC or your broker directly. You will be asked to present a CDS1A Form & the ID you used to open the account.

Download the CDS1A Form here

You can find CDSC contact information here

NB: Accounts dormant after a continuous period of 24 months of inactivity.
