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.

  • Value Investing : 

    This is a strategy of investing in companies whose shares are trading at less than their true worth.

  • Hot Issue : 

    A hot issue is an initial public offering (IPO) that is in great demand. Hot issues are normally oversubscribed. An example is the Safaricom IPO in 2008.

  • Active Shares : 

    These are shares which are most frequently traded (bought and sold) at the NSE, as distinguished from partly active shares in which trading is not as frequent. The shares of most leading companies are active.

  • Matching Orders : 

    This is an illegal practice that involves simultaneously entering identical buy and sell orders for a stock so as to give the impression of active trading.

  • Equity Market : 

    It is also known as the stock market. It is the market in which shares are issued and traded either through the stock exchange or over the counter markets. It is vital in any market economy because it provides an avenue through which companies can raise capital and gives the investing public an opportunity to own a slice of these companies. It can be divided into two. There is the primary market where new issues are first offered e.g. the initial public offerings. And the secondary market where all subsequent trading takes place at the Nairobi Securities Exchange.
