Our view

Increased local and foreign investor interest in Kenya raises the earning potential going forward due to increased equity and fixed income trading at the bourse. New Corporate and Government Debt issues are expected as well as new products such as the derivatives and REITS trading and new listings into the MIMS and the GEMS segment of the market. This will improve overall attractiveness and participation as well as increase transaction and listing levies.

The reduction of settlement days, the upgrade of the trading system as well as the commencement of short selling will increase liquidity at the exchange increasing turnover levels.
Positive outlook on the economy as well as a growing middle class increases the levels of disposal income that can go into investing at the exchange increasing the level of income earned by the bourse.
