Kenyan investors are increasingly turning to alternative investments as traditional avenues face mounting economic pressures. A recent report by the Central Bank of Kenya underscores CEOs’ concerns over macroeconomic instability and rising global commodity prices, prompting a shift towards more resilient asset classes.

Jane Doe, Chief Investment Officer at a Nairobi-based asset management firm, notes, “Alternative investments offer diversification and growth opportunities, especially in digital infrastructure and renewable energy sectors.”

According to Clearwater Analytics’ 2024 study, 55% of global institutional investors plan to boost allocations to alternatives over the next five years, reflecting a strategic move to hedge against market volatility.

Old Mutual Alternative Investments manages USD 7.4 billion across infrastructure, private equity, and impact funds, with notable returns from digital infrastructure and renewable energy projects across Africa. Local initiatives in road infrastructure and renewable energy further bolster economic growth and job creation.

“Amid economic uncertainties, alternative investments provide stability and long-term growth prospects,” says John Smith, Head of Investments at Old Mutual.

As East African investors increasingly adopt these strategies, alternative investments are poised to drive economic resilience and sustainable growth in Kenya.
