Investor Protection

Investor Education

  • Lien : 

    This is when a creditor or bank has legal claim against assets e.g. shares, which have been used as collateral to secure a loan. The lien terminates as soon as the loan is paid off.

  • Stock Exchange : 

    A Stock Exchange is the physical location where the stock market in a country is traded or the electronic platform used to effect such trade. In Kenya, the Nairobi Securities Exchange is currently the only licensed exchange.

  • Intraday : 

    This means within the day. It is often used to refer to the price movements of a stock within a single trading session. Example; when a stock reaches a new intraday high, it means that it is trading at a new high price, relative of all other prices it has traded at during the day.

  • Diversification : 

    This is limiting investment risk by purchasing different types of securities from different companies representing different sectors of the economy.

  • Positive Carry : 

    This is a condition in which the returns on an investment are greater than the cost of financing it. Example; if you were to borrow KES 100,000 at an interest rate of 10% and invest the same in a bond paying 12%, then there is a positive carry.
