Centum Investment Company has established the Two Rivers International Finance and Innovation Centre (TRIFIC) in Kenya.
This follows the gazettement of the Two Rivers land as a private services-focused special economic zone (SEZ).
TRIFIC is an international-calibre urban node with world-class infrastructure, facilities and a strategic location.
It aims to position Kenya as a hub for global investment and job creation by providing a world-class ecosystem where enterprises seeking to access the global and regional services market can locate themselves and benefit from the fiscal and enterprise facilitation incentives available to SEZ enterprises.

The Two Rivers International Finance and Innovation Centre is the first-ever privately-owned business services SEZ in Kenya.
Centum Group CEO, Dr James Mworia, said: “The gazettement of Two Rivers as a private, services-focused Special Economic Zone is a game-changer for Kenya.”
“TRIFIC will revolutionize Kenya’s economic landscape. This significant milestone not only solidifies Kenya’s position as a hub for global investment but a global talent hub that generates a multitude of employment opportunities for our skilled workforce that can address the skill shortage currently being faced by the developed world.”
It offers new and exciting prospects for global, regional and Kenyan service-oriented business enterprises seeking a base to access international markets competitively.
The SEZ designation grants businesses within TRIFIC access to a wide array of incentives available under the Special Economic Zone regime.
TRIFIC is located within Nairobi’s prestigious diplomatic blue zone, spanning over 64 acres.
It is an ideal ecosystem in Kenya where talent, supportive policies, and advanced technologies converge to drive sustainable success.
