About Capital Markets Authority

The Capital Market Authority,(CMA) is part of the financial market that provides funds for long-term development. This is a market that brings together lenders (investors) of capital and borrowers (companies that sell securities to the public) of capital.

In the 1980s the Government of Kenya realized the need to design and implement policy reforms to foster sustainable economic development for an efficient and stable financial system. In particular, it set out to enhance the role of the private sector in the economy, reduce the demands of public enterprises on the exchequer, rationalize the operations of the public enterprise sector to broaden the base of ownership and enhance capital market development.

It had become evident that the commercial banks could not support and sustain a desirable economic development because they could not offer the necessary long-term credit.
