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.

  • Book Loss : 

    This is the perceived loss when the value of a stock falls but is not actually sustained as the investor has not sold when the price has fallen.

  • Short Sale (or Short Position) : 

    This is the sale of securities e.g. shares which one does not own, or has borrowed. Short sellers assume the risk that they will be able to buy back the shares at a later date and at a lower price, thereby making a profit.

  • Corporation or Company : 

    A form of business organization created under the Companies Act of Kenya, which has a legal identity separate from its owners. The owners of the corporation are the shareholders and they are liable for the debts of the corporation only up to the amount of their investment. This is called limited liability.

  • Holding Company : 

    This is a company that holds enough voting shares (not necessarily 51%) in another company to control management and operations by influencing or electing its board of directors. It is also referred to as the parent company.

  • Proxy : 

    A proxy is an agent legally authorized to act on behalf of a shareholder during meetings of the company and to vote on his behalf.
