Making millions in Kenyan Property

20 May

The Kenyan market has been awfully lubricative especially for foreign investor because of the high profit margins of 20 to 30per cent, which analyst have argued is impossible even in the US or European markets. In the last decade, Kenya’s real estate has been anything but robust. The real estate boom survived the 2008 Post Election Violence and global economic downturn that crippled other sectors such as tourism and agriculture. The construction sector is approximated to have created 82,000 private sector jobs in 2010.     Kenya_Real_Estate

Some of the big projects include Tatu City , a multi-million dollar development located on the outskirts of Nairobi set on 1,000 hectares of land and estimated to house 70,000 residents and create close to 220,000 short term construction jobs and over 115,000 permanent jobs. The project championed by both local and foreign investors including Renaissance Capital, the Moscow-based investment bank, is estimated to cost in excess of Ksh. 400 billion ($4,784,688,643.00 USD).

Kenyan real estate is one of the most vibrant and profitable in the world today. Africa is the next big thing and it is led by Kenya being in the heart of this continent and with the highest level of growth going forward, so why let foreign inventors benefit for our country when you can send money to Kenya and invest in your future if you living abroad

Online banking

13 May

personal_online_banking_redWith online banking you can access a huge range of banking services from almost anywhere, anytime – from home, work, hotels, on the move or on the high street.

Online internet banking has created a convenient way for us to handle our business without leaving our home. There are inherent dangers associated with internet banking. Here are a few things to watch out for.Hacking

Most banks have safeguards against hacking, but your personal computer may not have the sophisticated technology that the banks incorporate. If you don’t have a good spy-ware detection and elimination program installed on your computer then you could be advertising your personal information to those who will do harmful things with it. Be sure your computer is up to date and safe against hacker attacks.

Up-to-Date Information

One of the lesser thought about dangers is the actual information. Many banks offer up to the minute transaction activity, and others don’t. It’s a slippery slope if we start relying on the balance information shown on our internet accounts, we could easily overdraft our accounts. Many people will toss out the check registers, and with debit cards, this can be very easy to forget to update them if we do keep them.

Secure Logins

You need to make sure that your bank has completely secure log in areas. It’s unfortunately not uncommon to end up with a virus that redirects your web browser to a mirrored site. These sites can look identical to the banks sites. Many sites that hold sensitive information have included extra security measures that are hard to mimic. Even though they are hard to mimic they aren’t fool proof. Ensure you know the banks log in address and that your browser was pointed there before you log in. Also keep your virus protection up to date to help avoid this.

Suspicious Emails

Chances are your bank will not ask for secure information through an email. If you receive an email from your bank asking you to log in, don’t click the link provided in the email. Instead open a new browser window and log in to your banking account that way. One of the easiest ways for your information to be compromised is to click a link and enter your information on a site that looks like your banks but actually isn’t.

In my next blog l will look into MasterCard and the confidence consumers have with the organisation.

 

 
 

Kenyan Economy at a glance

02 May

Kenya’ economy expanded by 5.6 per cent in 2013 and looks set to grow faster this year at 6.3 per cent, latest data from the IMF show. The International Monetary Fund carries the data in its World Economic Outlook 2014 released on Tuesday, which shows that sub-Saharan Africa’s Gross Domestic Product collectively grew by 4.9 per cent.

Kenya’s GDP was faster, but it was outpaced by its peers Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda.Ethiopia registered economic growth of 9.7 per cent in 2013, while Tanzania’s and Uganda’s GDPs expanded by seven per cent and six per cent respectively.

The IMF shows consumer prices in Kenya, which is rated as a low-income country, were up 5.7 per cent last year. It projects a 6.6 per cent inflation rate this year, and estimates a slower 5.5 per cent change in consumer prices in 2015.

The IMF data also show Kenya’s current account deficit will deteriorate this year to 9.6 per cent from 8.3 per cent in 2013, but will improve significantly next year to 7.8 per cent.

Growth in sub-Saharan Africa was buoyed by improved agricultural production and investment in natural resources and infrastructure, and is expected to accelerate this year.

The IMF however warns of tight global financing conditions or in emerging market economies could generate some “external headwinds” especially in countries with large external linkages, mineral producers and frontier economies.
