    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.

  • Warrant : 

    This is a certificate usually issued together with a bond or preferred shares that gives the holder the right, but not the obligation to subscribe for new ordinary shares at a specific price and within a specific time period. It is used to entice investors to buy the bond. It is worthless after the expiry period.
