At Kina Advisory we are passionate about two things: the future of the African Continent and the transformative role which business can play in helping countries and communities positively shape that future.
Meaning ‘depth’ in Swahili, Kina provides strategic counsel and practical assistance to companies operating and investing in Africa and other emerging economies.
We specialise in helping our clients to advance their interests by shaping and delivering smarter approaches to building productive relationships with key stakeholders. Underpinning this, we work with our clients to understand the operating context, specifically the political, social, socio-economic, environmental, and governance issues that are critical to the commercial success, ongoing viability and sustainability of their businesses.
We also work with client firms to manage the environmental and social impacts of their activities and to foster the broader socio-economic development of their host countries and communities, which we believe leads to deeper and more inclusive long term growth.
We are pragmatic, commercially-focused, and innovative – marrying strategy with operational execution and delivery. We combine a deep and wide knowledge of African countries with international experience – illuminating the operating context, the opportunities and the constraints.
