Members of the Counselors of Real Estate (CRE) played host to three students from the Kenya School of Monetary Studies last week. The school was established in 1997 by the Central Bank of Kenya and the Ministry of Finance to provide training for existing and prospective members of the African nation’s financial sector. These bankers of tomorrow visited with the CRE delegates to further their knowledge of real estate finance.

During their visit, the group toured the Atlantic Yards project, and met with officials from both New York University and TIAA-CREF. Next month, the three CREs will travel to Nairobi for continuation of the program.
