Under the new Equity brand, Polycarp will execute a business growth mandate by offering financial solutions along the business value chain and creating a seamless end to end solutions for individuals, business entities and enterprises.

“Indeed, financial services are at the heart of any social-economic transformation. I have made a conscious decision to resume my role at Equity and continue what I started. I am glad that the board has given me another chance.”
Managing Director and CEO Equity Group Holdings James Mwangi welcomed Polycarp back to Equity.
“A strong part of our Equity culture is keeping lasting relationships with our Equity family of staff and customers. They are always free to return to the family and bring new experiences,” he said.
