Foreign fund managers likely made up nearly 70% of demand for the offering to institutional investors, Chairman and CEO Ibrahim Sarhan said in an interview with Lamees El Hadidi’s Kelma Akheera (watch, runtime: 6:50).

Trading on e-finance’s shares will begin on Wednesday, October 18th, opening at EGP 13.98 per share, Sarhan pointed out, adding that the IPO values at around EGP 5.8 billion ($367 million).
