Meet The Founders

Joseph Kitamirike

CO-FOUNDER - ALTX Africa

Joseph spent several years at the highest levels of the traditional securities market which he found to be rigid, and inhospitable to innovation. This made investment inaccessible to the people who needed it the most. Combining an awareness of the possibilities offered by technology and the financial know-how, Joseph set out to change the investment landscape.

Technology that works

Fit investment into your life, not the other way around. We remain at the cutting edge of innovation and continually develop features that mean something to investors. On the go account access, mobile wallet fund transfers, instant settlements and more are all powered by custom built technology that is secure and reliable.

Investor Education

The confidence to invest can only be gained with knowledge. By providing free, open access to custom content based on the experiences of our investors, ALTX ensures potential investors are adequately prepared to participate in the market. One of the greatest obstacles to investment has been a simple lack of information on products, processes and opportunities. Now, anyone with any level of interest can find the answers and support they need on our web and mobile platforms.
