dc.description.abstract Imagine a vast expansive world full of investment opportunities for willing shareholders. As Kenyans, we can choose real estate domestically. We could also select corporate bonds in Kampala, stock equities in the New York, pensions in Paris, money market securities in London, or currency trading in Tokyo. The world holds immense choices for informed Kenyans. Whenever we scour the globe for the most appropriate places to invest our hardearned money, we undoubtedly look for a few key factors. First, investors do not like uncertainty. Investors from developed nations, in particular, have what researcher Geert Hofstede termed high uncertainty avoidance. Inasmuch, they desire to know what to expect. Managing expectations for investors and even donors proves critical in the due diligence process. Unpredictable expectations drive investors to flee a country or demand ridiculously high returns in order to warrant their investment. en_US
