List Of Licensed Collective Investment Schemes In Kenya

This article lists all licensed Collective Investment Schemes in Kenya. The Capital Markets Authority (CMA) is the regulatory body in Kenya that oversees the approval and regulation of Collective Investment Schemes (CIS).

Collective Investment Schemes (CIS) are investment vehicles that pool the resources of many small savers, generating a large pool to invest in financial assets such as stocks, bonds, treasury bills, and real estate. This way, Collective Investment Schemes generate high returns while minimizing risks by diversifying their investments.

In Kenya, there are 35 licensed Collective Investment Schemes (CIS) that offer 130 investment funds. The most popular fund type is the money market fund, while other options include fixed-income funds, equity funds, and special funds.
