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.

  • Issuer : 

    This is the company or government that is offering (or has already offered) stocks or bonds for sale to investors for the purpose of financing its operations.

  • Merger : 

    This is when two or more companies mutually and amicably come together to form a new company for increased overall efficiency. The shareholders of the merged companies are offered equivalent holdings in the new company and retain their powers, rights and benefits in the new firm.

  • Preference Shares : 

    These are shares that bear a fixed annual dividend and bear a right that any annual dividends available for distribution will be paid preferentially on these shares before ordinary shares. If the company is wound up, they are the first to be paid the par value of their shares ahead of ordinary shareholders.

  • Rights Issue : 

    This is a privilege to existing shareholders to subscribe for a new issue, shortly before it’s offered to the public, at a specified and usually discounted price, in proportion to the number of shares owned. They are also known as subscription rights or share purchase rights.

  • Voting Right : 

    This is the right of an ordinary shareholder to vote either in person or by proxy for the members of the board of directors and on other matters of corporate policy. The number of shares an individual owns corresponds to the number of votes he has. So an investor with 1,000 shares has 1,000 votes while an investor with 10 shares only has 10 votes.
