This chapter includes the following articles.
The market entered 2018 on the back of strong performance the previous year, in which the main index followed a broadly positive trajectory that continued into the first quarter. Though the markets saw some fluctuation over the following months, continuing legislative support and positive sector developments suggest a resilience going forward. At the same time, continuing regulatory support and a project pipeline that includes the continued launch of financial derivatives for equities, bonds and currencies, as well as the expansion of commodity derivatives, ensure the market will remain a driver in the region. This chapter contains interviews with Geoffrey Odundo, CEO, Nairobi Securities Exchange; and Geoffrey Gangla, CEO, Genghis Capital.
