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.

  • Sell Off : 

    This is the rapid and widespread selling of a security e.g. shares, leading to a sudden drop in their prices. A sell off may occur when a company issues disappointing end of year results.

  • Float : 

    Also known as free float and is the total number of shares issued by a listed company that are publicly owned and available for trading. Floating stock is therefore the number of shares of a company that are traded at the Nairobi Securities Exchange.

  • Automated Trading System (ATS) : 

    This is the online trading system software used at the Nairobi Securities Exchange to effect all trading transactions. It can be accessed through the NSE trading floor (through the Local Area Network) or from the stockbrokers’ offices (through the Wide Area Network). It is completely controlled and managed by the NSE.

  • Diversification : 

    This is limiting investment risk by purchasing different types of securities from different companies representing different sectors of the economy.
