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.

  • Parking : 

    This is when an investor places his money in safe investments while alternative investment avenues are being considered or while the stock market is unfavourable for fresh investments.

  • Fixed Income Investments : 

    These are investments such as fixed deposits, non-convertible debentures, or government bonds that yield a fixed rate of interest.

  • Long Squeeze : 

    A long squeeze occurs when the value of a stock drops in price thereby inciting further selling by more shareholders to avoid incurring dramatic loss. A long squeeze ends when the price falls to a point deemed to be too low then more investors come in to buy the stock and the price rises again.

  • Paper Profit : 

    This is when the market price of a share is greater than its original purchase price giving rise to a profit which is not a realized profit until the shares are actually sold.
