The Backstory:

Historically, real estate developers in the region have heavily relied on banks for funding. To address this challenge, industry players introduced innovative products like joint venture models and structured products to raise capital. In 2013, the Kenyan Capital Markets Authority (CMA) took a significant step by putting in place REITs regulations, aiming to bridge the funding gap and enhance the development of the Capital Markets.
