Ahmed Abul-Saad, Managing Director of Azimut Egypt, added on the sidelines of a press conference that the subscription will be received in various branches of Nasser Bank, and through the technological platforms of Azimut Egypt.
He added that the subscription door is available without a maximum limit, explaining that the fund’s return is completely tax-exempt, especially since cash funds provide high liquidity.
