In setting this salary, KCB factored in the achievement of its key financial goals. For example, in the financial year under which the payment was made, the bank’s net profit jumped by 21.8 per cent to Sh. 24 billion from the Sh. 19.7 billion it recorded in the same period in 2017. Its pretax profit rose 16 percent to Sh. 33.9 billion, helped by higher interest income and a drop in operating expenses.

The lender’s net interest income rose slightly to 48.8 billion shillings from 48.4 billion shillings in 2017, Lawrence Kimathi, group chief financial officer, told an investor briefing.Its operating expenses dropped 4 percent to 35 billion shillings, while net loans and advances climbed to Sh. 455.9 billion from Sh. 423 billion, Kimathi said.

KCB Group, which also operates in neighbouring Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and South Sudan, said its total assets jumped to Sh. 714.3 billion from Sh. 647 billion and customer deposits jumped to Sh. 537.5 billion  from Sh. 500 billion .
