The Programme Investment Committee (PIC) of the Financial Sector Deepening Trust (Kenya), (the Trust) wishes to appoint a service provider to act as trustee for the Financial Sector Deepening Trust (Kenya) for a five year period commencing 1 January 2017. Currently funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the charitable purpose of the trust is to promote pro-poor financial services in Kenya. Trust programmes include work on long term policy and research; regulation; financial industry infrastructure; and innovation.

The Trustee is fully accountable under the Kenyan Trustee Act (Cap 167) for the discharge of the charitable trust. The powers and responsibilities of the Trustee are set out in the Trust Deed, the PIC constitution and the Trust Policies and Procedures. Although the Trustee is fully responsible for the strategic direction, financial management and fiduciary oversight, and operations of the Trust, it is mandated to seek technical guidance through a ‘no objection’ of the PIC comprising donor and independent members, and to implement the programme using the services of technical and financial managers. As a result the role of the trustees is primarily one of oversight, ensuring that the systems and processes necessary to ensure programmatic, operational and financial integrity are followed. The Trustee will appoint two of its employees to act as the registered trustees of the Trust; and will be expected to maintain good donor relationships.

Financial Sector Deepening (FSD) Kenya was established by the UK's Department for International Development to support the development of inclusive financial systems in Kenya. In 2006 FSD funded the 1st survey to measure financial access in Kenya. FinAccess 2006 created a baseline from which to track progress towards financial inclusion, as well as producing valuable data on market segmentation and behaviour. Two follow on surveys, FinAccess 2009 and 2013, have since been conducted, producing valuable insights on market dynamics. The FinAccess surveys are produced under the management of the FinAccess Management Committee (FAM), comprising FSD, the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK), the Financial Sector Regulator's Forum (FSRF) and the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS). Within a relatively short period, FinAccess has been established as the leading source of reliable data on financial inclusion in Kenya and is widely cited in the media and used by Government, the private sector and international development partners. The fourth nationally representative survey is now being planned for 2015 to continue the time series and contribute to a longitudinal assessment of the changes in the marketplace. This should allow a comparative assessment of the changes in the landscape so as to develop a better understanding of the drivers of financial behaviour and choice as well as the constraints to access. FSD Kenya is seeking a research services provider to undertake the detailed field design, piloting, and fieldwork and data management necessary to implement a robust national survey of individual access to financial services for FinAccess 2015. The sample will be designed in conjunction with the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS), also a key member of FAM.

FSD Africa (‘FSDA’) is inviting Expressions of Interest from consulting or advisory firms to manage an FSDA-funded challenge fund (‘Challenge Fund’) that will attract competitive proposals from financial service providers (FSPs) in sub-Saharan Africa (‘SSA’) aimed at increasing access to financial services on the African continent (the ‘Services’).

The Challenge Fund will provide FSPs with resources to allow them to carry out a diagnostic of their core capabilities and capacity building needs; and develop quality change management proposals to implement value creation strategies at the finance frontier for FSDA's further consideration and possible funding.

Proposals for funding will be from FSPs themselves but working in collaboration with named consultants or advisory firms which will carry out the diagnostic work. Thus, while FSPs will be the grantees of awards made under the Challenge Fund, consultants and advisory firms will benefit from this funding to a major extent.

The most compelling proposals would qualify for FSDA support for technical assistance and grant funding that would support the FSPs towards building capacity and managing the change process as they implement their financial inclusion strategies.

If successful in the shortlisting process, your firm will be invited to put forward a full proposal for the management of the challenge fund.

Competition enquiry into USSD service provision in Kenya.

Leveraging the extensive mobile network coverage makes mobile phones an attractive channel for delivering low cost financial services. This is both through the direct provision of mobile financial services to consumers and the provision of channels such as unstructured supplementary service data (USSD) that can be used to support financial services provision. One of the potentially key aspects of effective competition in mobile financial services is thus access to these channels. This includes fair pricing and in the case of USSD based services, session quality. Preliminary market assessments in Kenya suggest there may be constraints to competition from access to USSD services. Premised on the above, the Competition Authority of Kenya (the Authority) has decided to carry out a market enquiry into the pricing and conditions of USSD access in Kenya. The objective of the study is to determine whether the provision and pricing of USSD services leads to constrained competition in the financial services market and identify any concerns relating to consumer protection. This study's outcomes will help determine whether the USSD pricing structures and access conditions observed in the financial services and other markets are competitive, and if not, identify actions to shift the market behaviour towards competitive outcomes. FSD Kenya, a financial inclusion development programme, is supporting the Authority in this endeavour.

Competition and consumer protection in the Kenya banking sector phase II.

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.
