The Kenya Association of Stockbrokers and Investment Banks is an association that represents the interests of Kenyan stockbrokerage and investment banking companies. It was initially founded as the Association of Kenya Stockbrokers (AKS) but later changed its name to KASIB in order to accommodate the interests and aspirations of investment banks that also operate as stockbrokers.
The eighteen members all have seats at the NSE and are holders of their respective licenses as stockbrokers or investment banks.

  • Liquidity : 

    This is the ability of an asset e.g. shares, to be bought or sold without affecting its price. Liquid assets are those that can be easily bought or sold without any significant change in price. Such assets are normally characterized by a high level of trading activity. A company which has issued a large number of shares is said to have liquid stock in the market. Investors find it safer to buy such stock because it is easier to get their money out of the investment if they need to do so.

  • Volatile Shares : 

    These are shares that are prone to sharp and dramatic prize changes over relatively short periods of time.

  • Liquidation : 

    This is the winding up of the business of a company either due to bankruptcy or through a resolution passed by its shareholders when the purpose of the company has been fulfilled. The company’s assets are sold and the proceeds pay creditors. Any money remaining thereafter is distributed amongst the shareholders.

  • Order Imbalance : 

    This is a situation in which buy orders for a particular stock greatly outnumber the sell orders or vice versa, making it impossible to match the orders. It is also referred to as an imbalance of orders. 

  • High : 

    This is the highest price that was paid for a stock during a certain time period. In a trading day, this price is not necessarily the same as the closing price.
