The Nairobi International Financial Centre has been established to create a more efficient and predictable operating environment in order to attract increased finance, investment, as well as support green growth and innovation. The NIFC framework provides firms with the conditions to flourish in Kenya and offers an efficient gateway into the Sub-Saharan Africa region.
More broadly, the NIFC will help to deepen local and regional capital markets, catalyze sustainable development in Kenya and contribute to Africa’s economic transformation.
Companies based in the NIFC also have the opportunity to be part of a vibrant financial ecosystem and live in one of Africa’s most exciting cities.
The NIFC is a key pillar of Kenya’s Vision 2030, a national development blueprint launched in 2008 with the aim of transforming Kenya into a middle-income country as well as strengthening Kenya’s offering as a globally competitive regional hub.
