RAK/KPDA BREAKFAST FORUM, TUESDAY 21ST MAY 2019 AT THE PARK INN BY RADISSON HOTEL IN WESTLANDS, NAIROBI

The REITS Association of Kenya (RAK) was established in 2017 by players in the Real Estate and Capital markets industries. Although in its infancy, the Association Membership has grown to include a diverse range of market participants including (but not limited to):

  • The Kenya Property Developers Association
  • The Kenya Association of Stockbrokers and Investment Bankers and
  • The Nairobi Securities Exchange (among the top 4 Exchanges in Africa)

One of the Association’s immediate goals is to promote the growth of REITs as a viable investable asset class by providing information and guidance to market aligned with proven global standards drawn from our international partners through focused small forums and conferences.

On Tuesday, 21st May 2019, KPDA and RAK held a jointly organized Breakfast Forum whose theme was “Practically Growing Real Estate Investments in Kenya.” The main objectives of this forum were to discuss the systematic journey of how REITs come to market and to draw potential REIT issuers together to encourage them to undertake an incubation process supported by RAK. Stanlib Fahari I-REIT were the event sponsors.
