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

  • Quorum : 

    This is the minimum number of shareholders in a company that are needed to make the proceedings of a meeting valid.

    .
  • Bear : 

    A stock market speculator who expects share prices to fall and therefore keeps selling in anticipation to buy the shares later at a lower price. All individuals can be bearish at times although some are perennially so. The term is derived from the attacking posture of the bear; pushing downwards.

    .
  • 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.

    .
  • Equity Shareholders : 

    These are the owners of a company sharing in its risks, profits and loss. They are paid a share of the company’s profits in proportion to their shareholding after all other claims have been met. In the event of the liquidation of a company they share whatever is left of the company after all its creditors have been paid. Only equity shareholders are allowed to vote in the company’s meetings.

    .
  • Equity Financing : 

    This is when a company raises money from the capital markets by issuing securities such as shares. The investors purchasing these shares become shareholders and receive ownership interests in the company.
