THE INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA
(Established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)
THE 3rd DEBT MANAGEMENT SEMINAR
Theme: In Pursuit of Best Practice in Debt Management
Venue: Acacia Premier Hotel, Kisumu
Date: 1st – 3rd August 2018
Debt management alone cannot solve macroeconomic imbalances and/or structural problems but appropriate debt level and structure coupled with a healthy domestic market can contribute to reducing vulnerabilities. The Kenyan corporate scene has over the last years witnessed shocking reports of seemingly successful organizations collapsing due to inappropriate debt management practices; reinforcing the importance of this much underrated subject. Debt management is critical for all organizations as it has the potential to influence insolvency, profitability and sustainability. This subject however largely remains ad hoc especially where there is a lack of debt strategy. In more organized institutions, such a strategy would balance costs and risks, consider the demand constraints and incorporate initiatives to develop new funding sources that support macroeconomic stability and debt sustainability.
Business dynamism characterised by varying debt flows and exchange rates; coupled with the recently instituted interest rates cap often results in changing costs and risks inherent in debt financing. Additionally, the credit market is rapidly transforming with modern forms of lending emerging such as the use of mobile platforms. All these introduce complexities that have a bearing on the firm’s bottom line and overall performance.
This three-day seminar has been organized to provide a platform for delegates to share experiences and exchange views on topical issues in public finance, debt management and debt crisis prevention.
