Corporate golf days are making a steady comeback after the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic, much to the relief of the golf clubs in the country. The last I&M Bank Corporate golf day was held at Muthaiga in 2019.

This year’s corporate golf day was powered by the newly launched Wealth Management Unit ran by I&M Capital, a subsidiary of the I&M Group. The unit offers customized Investment Solutions, Asset Management, Retirement Income and Financial Planning and seeks to help clients diversify their assets in order to balance their financial risks.
