August 1 @ 9:00 am - August 3 @ 4:00 pm


(Established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)


Theme: In Pursuit of Best Practice in Debt Management

Venue:  Acacia Premier Hotel, Kisumu

Date: 1st – 3rd August 2018

1.0  Introduction

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.

Thematic areas:

  • Debt Policy Development and Planning; Key Considerations
  • Debt Risk Management; Mitigating Operational Risks
  • Africa’s Indebtedness; Necessity or Looming Crisis?
  • Debt and the Achievement of Sustainable Development Goals
  • Debt, External Shocks and Financial Stability; Assessing the Correlation
  • Emerging Frontiers in Debt – Industry Considerations and Adaptation
  • Efficient Debt Planning and Management in the Public Sector; the Question of Sustainability
