Africa is undergoing tremendous changes which are transforming the social, political and economic welfare of the continent. Kenya and the wider Eastern Africa region are at the heart of this transformation, with the region showing remarkable resilience in a global environment that faces many uncertainties. Over the last decade, many local and international investors have taken a chance on the region and reaped great rewards. Going into the future, many more investors are setting up or looking at setting up operations in the region as a spring board to the wider continent. While such business decisions are driven primarily by commercial considerations, understanding the legal and regulatory landscape and the business drivers across the region are important in ensuring that the investors have a dependable organizational structure to support the commercial objectives of the business. At KPMG, we are keenly aware that when our clients succeed, we succeed too. Our understanding of the environment in which our clients operate is just the beginning.

A better way of working



Regulatory services should integrate and function as part of your project. That’s why our Regulatory Services function was established. With physical presence in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda, and servicing clients in the other Eastern Africa countries of Ethiopia, South Sudan, Somalia, Djibouti and Eritrea, we’re part of KPMG’s global initiative to make sure legal and regulatory services are provided seamlessly across various jurisdictions
