The banking sector in Kenya

This report covers the Kenyan banking sector, focusing on commercial banks and also including central banking, microfinance and mutual funds such as local credit and savings cooperatives and community financial service associations.

There are profiles of 56 companies, including notable commercial banks such as Standard Chartered, Stanbic, Equity Bank and KCB Group, smaller banks such as Paramount and Middle East Bank and microfinance banks such as Faulu and Muungano.

Most assets in Kenya’s banking sector are held by commercial banks, and of these, most are held by the country’s 10 listed companies, half of which are foreign-owned. The Kenyan banking sector is widely seen as overbanked, and the big banks are being driven by intense competitive, low-margin conditions to consolidate through mergers and acquisitions and regionalize entirely.

Digital Disruption

The traditional network model of branches, ATMs and agents is being disrupted by digital banking services that are changing the way commercial banks reach their customers.

The majority of banking transactions in Kenya take place outside of branches, and digital and mobile banking services can be deployed at a fraction of the cost of branches, ATMs and even agents, allowing commercial banks to expand to previously unreached consumers while reducing costs and improving revenues. through digitization and mobile banking investments.


The Kenyan banking sector has consolidated in recent years. After a period of loan restructuring and the subsequent restoration of net interest income and profitability, large, well-capitalized commercial banks are expected to continue to consolidate locally and acquire smaller, lower-valued banks, expand into the region and to pursue digital banking to reduce costs and win the small business and household customers lost to non-banking competitors in recent years.
