Fieldstone Africa has set its East Africa headquarters in Nairobi.
Kenya’s capital city now joins other Fieldstone Africa sites in London, Johannesburg, Berlin and Washington DC.
Multinationals have been leveraging on Kenya’s position as a gateway to East and Central Africa, vast human resource and rapid tech uptake to invest in the country.
The latest firm to set its base in Kenya is Fieldstone Africa, an investment bank in energy and infrastructure, which has now set its East Africa headquarters in Nairobi.
The firm joins the likes of Rockerfeller Foundation, Sameer group, Huawei, General Electric and Google that have set up shop in Kenya.
The move by Fieldstone Africa aims leveraging on Kenya to serve existing clients and assist in the dynamic growth in the country and the region.
Fieldstone Africa is keen to have its existing clients as well as local companies tap into its global network.
Fieldstone Africa has established itself over its twenty years in Africa as a leading player in energy, infrastructure and related large capital projects.
During that time, Fieldstone has been involved in transactions worth 1.2 trillion shillings throughout the continent.
The firm spearheaded the listing of Uganda based Umeme on the Nairobi Securities exchange.
