Find Banking and Financial Services expertise in Kenya


The banking sector is well developed. The leading banks in terms of asset ownership are Kenya Commercial Bank, Barclays, Standard Chartered and Cooperative Bank. Of the 44 licensed institutions one is a mortgage finance company and 13 are foreign owned. In 2012 there were no building societies licensed in Kenya. At least ten banks are listed on the Nairobi Stock Exchange. In order to narrow the exchange rate and improve competition, forex bureaus were licensed in 1995; there are now over 100 bureaus operating in seven locations around Kenya. In March 2007, major private sector advances took place in Kenya, at the time ahead of its regional counterparts. A mobile phone company Safaricom launched the MPesa service for transferring up to KSh35,000 (US$500) between mobile phone accounts.
