Investment Banks in Kenya

Investment banks in Kenya are an essential part of the financial sectors of modern economies. Providing alternative savings tools to savers and non-bank sources of financing for enterprises, the markets promote economic growth through improved efficiency in savings mobilization.

Nevertheless, in an economy of many private enterprises, many firms list in the market while many that qualify to do so do not. Capital market authorities may be unaware of plausible factors that induce firms to list in the market.

Worse, they may be unaware of persisting negative factors that may inhibit qualified firms from listing in the stock exchange. The capital markets consist of the primary market and the secondary market. The primary markets are where new stock and bonds issues are sold (underwritten) to investors. The secondary markets are where existing securities are sold and bought from one investor or speculator to another, usually on an exchange.

Investment banking in the general economy strives to; improve their capital bases, reduce operational costs, improve assets quality by reducing the rate of nonperforming loans, employ revenue diversification strategies as opposed to focused strategies and keep the right amount of liquid assets. Indeed the descriptive analysis of these factors by number of investment banking have shown that large investment banks perform better than the small and medium investment banks hence superior in their contribution to economic growth. This study therefore, sought to establish the impact of investment banking on economic growth of Kenya.
