Networking Events

The FMA plans networking forums for staff from amongst the member firms. These networking sessions are intended for all staff, not just for those within the investment teams.  Examples of such networking event are as follows:

FMA Breakfast Talks

During these events, the FMA invites a well known individual to the industry to discuss or present on a topic considered to be relevant to the industry’s future. For the last Breakfast Talk FMA invited CMA’s CEO Mr. Paul Muthaura to share a presentation on the Capital Markets Masterplan for Kenya, a comprehensive strategic plan for Kenya’s capital market over the next 10 years

Annual Trivia night

The FMA organizes an annual trivia night to get staff away from their desks to having fun and learning about other colleagues in the industry. This is intended to be a fun event pitting member firms against each other. Each FMA member enters a team of up to ten staff to represent their firm.   The winning team takes home a trophy and a gift voucher. Each year the Secretariat creates a challenging competition based on trivia from around the world, the East African Region and Kenya (none of it is based on financial analysis or investment management!).  The 2016 event was extremely competitive in that we had a three – way tie for first forcing a “Golden Goal” question to determine the final winner.

 

The winners of the annual FMA Trivia Quiz in the respective years are as follows:
