Chairman’s Welcome Message

REITS Association of Kenya (RAK) is the collective representative body of the real estate investment trusts sector in the country. We aim to promote the growth of REITs in Kenya through various initiatives including:

  • Lobbying policy makers, government bodies and regulators to promote and protect member’s best interests;
  • Publishing research and industry information through reports, analysis and publications;
  • Organizing investor outreach programs to educate and sensitize industry stakeholders on REITs and real estate investments; and
  • Creating partnerships with like-minded Associations and organizations regionally and internationally in order to catalyze knowledge transfer.

RAK’s members are leading and established property developers, consulting firms, associations, professional service providers and professionals operating within the real estate and capital market industries.

Our forums provide great networking platforms and capacity building opportunities, and our growing research portal is a solid information hub for industry stakeholders.
