Imperial Bank appointed a new managing director in September after the death of Abdulmalek Janmohamed, who had led the bank since its founding in 1992. Imperial had completed a bond sale earlier this month, a 2 billion shilling ($19 million) bond that was to begin trading on the Nairobi Securities Exchange on the same day the bank was suspended. The listing has since been canceled.
