    Broker is short for Stockbroker and refers to a member of the Nairobi Securities Exchange who is licensed to buy or sell securities on behalf of investors. Brokers are essentially the link between investors and the stock market. When acting on behalf of an investor for the purchase or sale of a listed stock, the broker does not own the securities but charges a commission on the gross value of the transaction.

  • Liquidity : 

    This is the ability of an asset e.g. shares, to be bought or sold without affecting its price. Liquid assets are those that can be easily bought or sold without any significant change in price. Such assets are normally characterized by a high level of trading activity. A company which has issued a large number of shares is said to have liquid stock in the market. Investors find it safer to buy such stock because it is easier to get their money out of the investment if they need to do so.
