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.

  • Holder of Record : 

    This is the name of an individual or entity who is the registered owner of a security. Dividends and other distributions are paid only to the holder of record.

  • Minority Interest : 

    This is when an individual or company owns a significant but non-controlling shareholding of less than 50% of a company’s shares. It is also known as minority ownership.

  • Active Shares : 

    These are shares which are most frequently traded (bought and sold) at the NSE, as distinguished from partly active shares in which trading is not as frequent. The shares of most leading companies are active.

  • Receivership : 

    This is a form of bankruptcy where an independent party, the receiver-manager is appointed to run the company to recoup as much of the unpaid loans as possible. A receiver must try to save the firm and if unable to do so it is sold or liquidated.

  • Thin Market : 

    A thin market is when there are comparatively few bids to buy or offers to sell, or both. Since only a few transactions take place in a thin market, the prices tend to be more volatile.
