Radhika Bhachu, the Co-founder & CEO of Ndovu, is passionate about promoting responsible investing through financial education and the provision of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) that create long-term wealth.
Radhika has 10+ years of experience advising global top 500 companies. She has worked at London-based companies Deloitte and BlackRock, advising investors on putting their savings to work. Radhika Bhachu worked at the London office of BlackRock, one of the world’s largest investment management companies by assets under management. She was responsible for leading BlackRock’s relationships with UK pension schemes of all shapes and sizes, investing across all asset classes and strategies, from index-tracking, LDI, active management and alternatives to full fiduciary arrangements.
In 2020, she returned to Kenya to explore how she could put her savings to work in her home country and soon discovered that there is currently $85bn sitting idly inside a collective of African bank accounts. Due to the high inflation rates in Africa, that money is losing value each day, which presents a sizable problem for the continent.
Upon interacting with several people back home and doing some research, Radhika discovered that many Kenyans didn’t have access to the tools and resources they needed to create and grow their wealth. So, recognising the opportunity to build a personalised, cost-efficient investment solution, she partnered with Kenyan investment experts to make investing more accessible and people-friendly.
Radhika started Ndovu, a simplified investment solution for Africans to even the playing field because everyone deserves to succeed. Ndovu provides easy access to financial markets directly from your phone, and guides our customers through the entire investment journey, so that they can reach their money goals. They provide retail investors with digital advice and access to global & local markets through a Robo-Advisor. With Ndovu, users answer a series of questions and receive an investor profile based on their ability to take risks. Users then can invest in mutual funds. Along the journey we provide educational content to improve our users’ financial literacy.
In addition, Ndovu’s female-led team is passionate about promoting responsible investing through financial education and the provision of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) that create long-term wealth.
