Moody's Analytics and KBA East Africa Webinar Series: Risk Based Loan Pricing

Kenya’s parliament agreed last year to remove an interest rate limit that was introduced in 2016 to curb high borrowing costs. The policy is expected to benefit local banks although there are concerns about a return to excessive borrowing costs. It is also expected that the move will attract more competition in the lending space among banks and other lenders going forward.

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • The current pricing framework adopted by Financial Institutions in Kenya
  • The best practices in Risk Based Loan Pricing
  • How has IFRS 9 and recent COVID-19 crisis impact the loan pricing methods
  • Example of a loan pricing model practical application
