Genesis has deep experience in the payments space, with expertise spanning Africa and the Middle East. Given the importance of payments in allowing individuals, businesses and governments to transact quickly and affordably, our work has implications for both public and private sector strategies, payment regulation and oversight, as well as financial inclusion - all areas in which we consult widely.
Vision and strategy for Kenya’s National Payment System
Genesis was engaged by the Financial Sector Deepening Trust (FSD) Kenya, on behalf of the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK), to perform a market analysis of the payments landscape in Kenya, and thereafter develop a 10-year vision and five-year strategy for the National Payment System (NPS).
Plan for improving cross-border payments in SADC
Genesis partnered with the FinMark Trust to verify what impact SADC's electronic cross-border payment system (called SIRESS) was having on the cost and efficiency of cross-border payments, and to understand why banks were not making greater use of it.
