top story Africa investor Ai40 Weekly Commentary - 27 March 2017

Last week, the Ai40 Investor’s Index cooled down following significant upward movements that saw the Index reach a record high for 2017 in the previous week. Kenyan banking equities stole the show as they dominated the Gainers List. The Index was down marginally by 0.27 points, a drop of 0.28% from last week’s value of 94.33. The Index closed Friday at a value of 94.06. In world markets, the key development investors were watching on Friday was the US Congress’ vote to repeal the "Obama Care" health-care bill. Due to a deficit of votes in favour of overhauling the bill, Republicans pulled the bill and this dealt a blow to President Trump who has faced strong opposition to implement a variety of policies since taking office.
