Welcome to this year’s MMAN Insights.
Investors have been keen on the goings on with Brexit. Sooner or later the whole world and in particular
Britain’s economic trade partners, such as Kenya, will soon find out whether it’s a ‘Deal’ or ‘No Deal’. In any
event the question investors need to ask themselves is if there is a ‘No Deal’ scenario; will they be ready? What
does a ‘No Deal’ mean to them?
In very general terms, in the event of a No Deal, there may be some international logistical nightmares and
increased costs of trading but other than that there is some reassurance that at a political level not much will
change between Britain and Kenya as trading partners. Given the international circumstances and considering
a renewed ray of hope in the local current economic environment, investors need to prepare themselves for
some increased level of activity starting now!
