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.

  • Index : 

    A stock market index is a statistical measure of the state of the stock market, based on the performance of a number of representative stocks. Each index (from different stock markets across the world) has its own calculation methodology and is usually expressed in terms of a change from a base value. Thus, a percentage change of the index is more important than its numeric value. The index is usually considered to be reasonably representative of the performance of the stock market as a whole.
