Buoyed by rapid urbanization, an increasingly wealthy middle class, the attractive valuations of private market assets, and subdued global growth has positioned Kenya well for institutional investment. This is evident in the growth of buyout groups in the region and the growing number of successful exits. However, unease remains and policymakers, regulators, Kenyan asset owners must innovate to encourage long-term savings and sustainable capital.

Themed implementing catalysts for impact and financial returns, the 2018 Kenya Alternative Investment Intensive brings together policymakers, regulators, asset owners and asset managers for thought-provoking discussions on how the public and private sector can work together to deliver a sustainable and robust private and alternatives markets for institutional capital.


KEY THEMES

SCALING IMPACT INVESTING


Scaling Impact Investing in Kenya

Leading impact investors deploying capital for return, social and environmental outcomes convene to identify new approaches to inspire, educate and look at progress in scaling up capital in the impact space.
INFRASTRUCTURE DEBT


Investing in infrastructure debt

Kenya asset owners can take advantage of infrastructure debt as their long-dated liabilities provide a natural match for the long-dated nature of infrastructure debt. What are the challenges of this in Kenya?
PRIVATE EQUITY & REAL ASSETS


New Capital Model for Kenya

Alongside PE, fund managers now have private debt and permanent capital vehicles (PCV) as alternative strategies of risk-adjusted returns in their investment portfolio. This Intensive examines drivers of this growing trend.
