Kampala, 10 April  2018 – To further enhance innovation in the real estate sector, today, Housing Finance Bank (HFB) the leading mortgage lender in Uganda has partnered with, brainchild Burson- Marsteller, the country’s most awarded public relations agency to sponsor the second edition of Innovation Series which is slated for April 26th, at the Pearl of Africa Hotel.

According to the Managing Director, Mr. Mathias Katamba, Housing Finance Bank, is proud to partner with brainchild Burson-Marstellar because Innovation Series, a thought leadership event, plays a pivotal role in promoting innovation in Uganda’s business environment, through high impact thought leadership discussions that stimulate product, service and business innovation which affects the strategic growth of organizations.

The theme for the second edition: Making Real Estate Ownership a Reality: Practical Innovations for Uganda, he adds, “Is timely because the cost of constructing houses in Uganda is skyrocketing to the disadvantage of many ordinary Ugandans. We therefore view Innovation Series an avenue for stimulating vital discussions that will lead to a reduction in the general cost of acquisition and construction of real estate, through new ways of building and financing houses.”

“As we celebrate 50 years of service to Ugandans, we pride ourselves in supporting such initiatives that provide practical innovations to everyday Ugandans in a bid to make housing affordable and accessible for all,” he adds.
