About KASIB

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.

Investor Education

  • Underwriters : 

    Underwriters are specialized companies that administer the public issuance and distribution of new shares of a company. They undertake the risk of failure or success of the issue.

    .
  • Stop Order : 

    A stop order is one placed by an investor with a stockbroker to buy or sell shares at a particular price (stop price) or better.

    .
  • Ordinary Shares : 

    These are by far the most common types of share class. They are standard shares with no special rights or restrictions that give the shareholder part ownership of the company in proportion to the number of shares held. They also entitle him/her to dividends, the right to attend the company’s annual general meeting, the right to participate in the policy decisions of the company, the right to vote on issues affecting the company and the right to receive the annual report and audited accounts of the company.

    .
  • Private Placement : 

    This is when a company raises capital via a private rather than public placement. It therefore sells shareholding to a selected few investors, mostly institutional investors.

    .
  • Penny Stock : 

    These are shares with a very low price and market capitalization usually not traded in the main exchanges. They are generally considered to be highly speculative and high risk.
