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.

How we play our role
KASIB engages with domestic, regional and international exchanges, depositories, custodians, government, the public and other specific stakeholders from time to time in developing our Capital Market. We make policy recommendation and give input on draft. Our aim is to facilitate enabling laws, regulations, rules and guidelines and continuously enhance the operations and development of the KASIB Council Members including our own corporate documentation. We further promote Capital Markets awareness training and investors education.

  • Record High : 

    This is the highest historical price level reached by a security e.g. shares, or index during trading. The record high is measured from when the share started trading and is updated whenever the last record high is exceeded.

  • Trading Session : 

    This is one day of business trading at the stock exchange, from the opening bell to the closing bell.

  • Strong Sell : 

    This is a strong recommendation by an analyst or stockbroker to an investor to sell shares in a particular company which he believes will soon be experiencing unfavourable financial performance or market conditions.

  • Settlement Period : 

    This is the period within which a buyer must pay for the purchase and a seller must deliver the shares sold. It is prescribed with reference to the date of trade i.e. T+4 means four days after the trade transaction the process must be completed.

  • Over the Counter (OTC) : 

    This is a market where shares (or other securities) which are not listed in the main stock exchange are traded. These shares are traditionally those of small companies which do not meet the listing requirements of the exchange. For such transactions, brokers negotiate directly with one another through computer and telephony networks. It is also called off-board trading.
