Professional services

The relatively low barriers to entry for professional service providers may make the professional services industry easy to enter, but can delude entrants and even practicing professionals on what it actually takes to sustain a thriving professional practice.

The East African Community common market negotiations categorise professional services into 12 sectors: Business Services; Communication Services; Distribution Services; Education Services; Financial Services; Health Services; Construction and Related; Engineering; Environmental Services; Tourism Services; Transport Services; Recreational, Sporting, Cultural Services and Others.

In Kenya, the professional service industry (excluding tourism, telecommunications and transport ) is dominated by the banking and insurance services sectors, which account for approximately 75% of revenues and 35% of employment.

Our advisory work in the professional services industry segments professional services along professional practice lines.
