Pius Muchiri Mugo
CEO Centum Asset Managers Limited, Nairobi, Kenya
Pius is the incumbent Managing Director of Centum Asset Managers (CAM), which is a subsidiary of the largest quoted investment company in East Africa.
Over the last five years, Pius has spearheaded the aggressive growth of the Centum Group’s Quoted Private Equity (QPE) portfolio with a focus on public securities across Sub-Saharan Africa. Under his leadership, the portfolio has grown from USD 10 Million to USD 60 Million. Pius has been at the heart of transforming Centum from a local to a respected Sub-Saharan Africa investment brand through its investment footprint. During that time, he helped build an impressive performance track record that was the motivation behind transforming his previous business unit, QPE, into a fully fledged fund manager, CAM, in April 2013, thus, opening doors to managing third party funds. Pius now oversees Asset Under Management (AUMs) of over USD 100 Million.
