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.

  • Historical Volatility (HV) : 

    This is the degree of price fluctuation of a stock over a given period of time e.g. a day. It is directly related to the level of risk associated with a stock; low HV means low risk while high HV means high risk.

  • Corporation or Company :

The owners of the corporation are the shareholders and they are liable for the debts of the corporation only up to the amount of their investment. This is called limited liability.

  • Staying Power : 

    This is the ability of the investor to hold on to a share, even when its price has fallen, for an eventual recovery and is crucial in any investment strategy. One of the golden rules of investment in the stock market therefore is: Do not invest in shares money which you may need. 

  • Financial Markets : 

    A financial market is generally any market place where buyers and sellers transact in assets such as equities, bonds, currencies and derivatives and include money markets and capital markets.
