Capital Markets Development

EADB has been intimately involved in the development of regional capital markets since the mid-90s and is the pioneer issuer of bonds in East Africa, which are now commonly issued in the region. The Bank endeavours to develop new instruments for the purpose of raising funds and deepening the capital markets.

It also supports the capital markets through direct equity participation or financing of organizations that provide infrastructure for capital markets or through sponsorship of programmes and activities that help in development and deepening of the capital markets.
