Forex Exchange Rates

The Central Bank of Kenya compiles indicative foreign exchange rates daily for use by the general public. These rates reflect the average buying and selling rates of the major participants in the foreign exchange market at the open of trade every day, thus providing aforex good indicator for any interested party on the value of the shilling on any particular day.

It is noteworthy that the rates provided by the central bank are only indicative and the forex dealers, i.e. commercial banks and forex bureaus, may apply varying rates on their forex transactions. It is expected that competition among the dealers will lead to reasonable/competitive margins being applied to forex transactions with customers.

Forex bureaus are licensed to cater specifically for the retail end of the forex market, i.e. buyers and sellers of small amounts of forex, mainly cash. Bureaus therefore often have favorable rates for this market segment when compared to commercial banks’ cash rates.

The commercial banks are more competitive when dealing with larger amounts of forex that are settled via telegraphic transfers using correspondent accounts abroad and therefore tend provide finer rates for this market segment. Nevertheless, all forex deals are transacted on a willing buyer willing seller basis and are subject to negotiation between the forex dealers and their customers.
