Banking and Financial Services

The banking and financial servitude industry in Kenya is primarily governed by the Banking and the Financial Institutions and the foreign Exchange Acts.

The acts regulate and supervise the activities of a wide range of institutions, which accept deposits from the general public. Persons falling within the scope of the Act are obliged to register as depositing institutions and to comply with onerous duties and restrictions (such as the rendering of returns and the maintenance of certain capital and liquid asset requirements).
