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.

  • Thin Market : 

    A thin market is when there are comparatively few bids to buy or offers to sell, or both. Since only a few transactions take place in a thin market, the prices tend to be more volatile.

  • Quote : 

    This is the price at which a share is currently traded at the stock exchange. It is also referred to as the quotation or quoted price.


  • Bonds : 

    Bonds are also referred to as fixed income securities. They are promissory notes issued by government and corporations that entitle the investor to a specific interest at specific intervals over a specified length of time and to receive the principal upon maturity. Unlike shares, bonds do not carry with them any sense of ownership but guarantee interest even when the issuer does not register a profit.

  • Share Repurchase Plan : 

    This is a program through which a company buys back its own shares from the open market. This is normally because the management believes that the shares are undervalued, or wants to reduce the shares outstanding (i.e. supply) so as to increase the earnings per share. A share repurchase plan tends to elevate the market value of the shares.

  • Dollar Cost Averaging : 

    This is investing a fixed amount of money in a specific security at regular set intervals over a period of time. The investor buys more shares when the price is low and buys fewer shares when the price is high. This results in a lower average cost per share.
