Financial Sector Deepening Trust (Kenya) | Published July 22, 2015  -  Deadline July 29, 2015

FSD Kenya is providing financial support to the Competition Authority of Kenya (CAK) to undertake phase two of the competition and consumer protection study in the Kenya banking sector. Phase one of the study, which was finalised in 2014, analysed the industry structure from a supply side perspective. This was to determine whether there were indicators of market structure that inhibited effective competition. There was no compelling evidence found to show that structural features of the market inhibited effective competition in the sector. However, the absence of such features does not give assurances that competitive pressures will be created as there are other factors that impact on the effectiveness of the sector. In addition, there still exists persistent concerns among stakeholders that competition is weak in the banking sector. Given this, a second phase of the study has been commissioned to seek evidence of the effectiveness, or otherwise, of completion in the sector from a demand side approach.

Development of the financial system has been earmarked as a priority under Kenya's long-term development aims set out in Vision 2030 and the second Medium Term Plan (MTP) covering the period 2013-17. Ensuring effective competition in the banking sector is a key part of this plan. There is concern that weak competition leads to high lending rates coupled with high interest rates spread and high switching costs. The Competition Authority of Kenya, which has the statutory mandate to examine competition issues in Kenya, seeks to conduct a market study into the banking sector. The study will be undertaken in two phases with support from FSD Kenya. The objective of the first phase of the study is to carry out a preliminary competition and consumer protection assessment of the banking sector to determine specific areas of concern to inform more in-depth, focussed work during phase two. The services of a specialist service provider are sought to carry out both phases of the study, under the guidance of the Authority, to identify any barriers to competition and consumer protection issues. Phase 2 will be contingent on the outputs from phase 1. FSD Kenya and the Competition Authority of Kenya will determine, based on the findings from the first phase, whether the public policy interest will be served by the more in-depth investigation envisaged in the second phase. It will be at FSD Kenya and the Competition Authority of Kenya‘s sole discretion as to whether to move ahead with an alternative approach following the first phase if in their judgement such an alternative is preferable.

IPSL strategy technical assistance

Retail banking has developed rapidly over the last decade in Kenya with significant innovations in the channels used to provide services. Collectively these channels represent a critical part of the payment system. While previously the bank branch was the channel through which the vast majority of customers accessed services, today we see ATMs, debit and credit cards, internet banking, mobile phones and more recently bank agents. This has revolutionised the cost, convenience and quality of services. However much of this channel infrastructure has been built through the initiative of individual banking institutions. The result is that there is little sharing of infrastructure. It is estimated, for example, that the average bank customer in Kenya is able to access less than a quarter of the ATMs in the country. Many banks continue to build proprietary agent networks. There has been a growing push for regulatory guidelines to prohibit the imposition of exclusivity of these agents.

The Kenya Bankers Association (KBA) recognizing the central role of the banking industry in the payment system established the Kenya Inter-participant Transaction Switch project in 2012 to address the challenge of creating an integrated retail payment system in Kenya. Various options were explored and the KBA membership mandated the KBA management to pursue a solution involving the establishment of an integrated payment platform. Provisionally named KITS, it is envisioned that the system will provide the banking industry with a platform to significantly improve the sharing of payment system infrastructure. KITS has the potential to assist the banking industry and Kenya's financial regulators in meeting their shared objectives of promoting increased efficiency and financial inclusion. This will be achieved by lowering interbank switching costs to banks and, with appropriate interchange pricing, enabling banks to lower prices to consumers while simultaneously increasing the accessibility and convenience of banking services. The vision here is to support the transition to a ‘cash-lite’ economy by 2020 driven by the ubiquitous adoption of digital money.

KBA formed a limited liability company, Integrated Payment System Limited (IPSL), to handle the day to day operations of the KITS switch.

In 2015, the KBA and IPSL team requested for FSD Kenya to support the development of a 5-year strategic roadmap for the switch with the aspiration that the switch would later become the national switch. FSD Kenya committed to support this. It was however agreed that this work would be carried out after the switch and PesaLink went live.

Kenya payments system: non-bank interoperability study.

Effective interoperability has the potential to deliver major gains in the development of payment systems. The Kenya Bankers' Association (KBA) has initiated an Integrated Payments Project (IPS). The preliminary stage, completed over the last year and supported by FSD Kenya, identified a strong business case for action by the banking industry in improving the integration of the national payments system. This has since been endorsed by the KBA Governing Council and the project is moving to the implementation stage. However, as a bank-led initiative, the analysis did not focus on the interests or perspectives of the non-bank institutions involved in the payment system. A further study is required to encompass all retail non-banking participants in the payment system. Critical non-bank players include: mobile money operators including mobile network operators (MNOs), Savings and Credit Co-operatives (SACCOs), micro-finance institutions (MFIs), card schemes, payment processors, independent acquirers and switches. The KBA recognises that an integrated national system must include these other key players but, given its role in supporting the banking industry, it is also not in a position to drive this further phase. As a neutral entity, FSD Kenya can support the research and analysis necessary to move towards a genuinely national solution to more effectively integrating Kenya's payments infrastructure. The purpose of the proposed study is to identify the options for engaging non-banking players in an industry-led initiative to create an efficient and sound interoperable national retail payments platform. The service provider's responsibilities will include: - Review existing relevant literature and analysis; - Estimate potential industry-wide efficiency gains from channel sharing; - Project potential industry-wide income gains from business expansion; - Identify potential options for an industry driven interconnection solution; - Analysis of the cost-benefits of prospective solutions; - Presentation and discussion of results with stakeholders; - Development of final business case for the preferred option.

The Kenya Post Office Savings Bank (KPOSB) is a savings bank established in 1910 and currently operates under the Kenya Post Office Savings Bank Act (enacted 1978) as its primary governing law. The mandate of KPOSB is to encourage a savings culture among Kenyans, pool personal savings for national development and provide affordable savings facilities and instruments. KPOSB has among the largest retail customer bases in the country served through a nationwide network of branches, agents and ATMs. KPOSB also has an agency arrangement with the Postal Corporation of Kenya (PCK), through which it has access to other outlets across Kenya. The Government of Kenya has decided that the mandates of KPOSB and PCK be re-defined and, if necessary, new or revised legislation be introduced to further the delivery of financial services by KPOSB. To this end, Government of Kenya, through the National Treasury, has requested the Financial Sector Deepening Trust, Kenya (FSD Kenya), to provide financial and legal advisory services for the restructuring of KPOSB. This will encompass a redefinition of its mandate, governing legislation, structure, and operations. The objective of the consultancy will be: a) To review the KPOSB's governing laws in order to convert it to a limited liability company registered under the Companies Act; b) To restructure and enable KPOSB to apply for a banking licence under the Banking Act, so that it operates as a banking institution wholly supervised by the Central Bank of Kenya; c) To review existing arrangements and agreements between KPOSB and PCK with a view to clearly setting out the various services to be offered by each organisation.
