Research Interest

I have interest in two areas. First, management of working capital in institutions, working capital being the living blood in an organization. Scarcity of blood or poor blood will always make a healthy organization go under. Secondly, research interest in regulatory bodies such as Capital Market Authority (CMA), Insurance Regulatory Authority (IRA), Retirement Benefit Authority (RBA), SACCOs Societies Regulatory Authorities (SASRA) and Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE).
