Investing in Kenya

Is there anyone abroad who has come across a good securities company that can process order for Kenyan stocks / equities on time?

Most people are experiencing turnaround of more than 1 month. That is too long in a time conscious endeavor like equity investment.

And it is suspected with good reason that brokers are using money sent by Kenyans to do their own deals, make money and then turnaround and buy shares at a price higher than the client had intended.

It is the most frustrating thing to try and invest in Kenya yet the economy is booming and the stock market is in the upper echelon of all stock markets in terms of return.

Anyone who attends the “Kenyans for Kenya”-Kenya Diaspora Investment Forum in the UK please give as much feedback as possible.
