The Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE), established in 1954 as Nairobi Stock Exchange, is the leading stock exchange in East Africa offering world class trading facilities for both its local and foreign investors looking to gain exposure to the country's rising economy. The bourse is based in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya - one of the fastest-growing economies in Sub-Saharan Africa. The NSE operates under the jurisdiction of the Capital Markets Authority of Kenya, and is governed by an 11-member board of directors. In 2014, consequent to its successful IPO to raise Ksh 627 million, the NSE demutualized and became listed on the main board of its own exchange.

In 2008, in order to provide investors with a comprehensive measure of the performance of the market, the NSE launched the NSE All-Share Index (NASI). The NASI is a market capitalization-weighted index (base value of 100 as of January 2008) comprising all listed securities, effectively, the benchmark index for the Kenyan stock market. In 2011, together with FTSE International, the NSE introduced the FTSE NSE Kenya 15 and FTSE NSE Kenya 25 indices which are designed for the creation of index tracking funds and derivative products, and as performance benchmarks while ensuring their investability. The NSE 25 Share Index measures the top 25 companies.

The NSE maintains four market listing categories, namely, the Main Investment Market Segment, Alternate Investment Market Segment, Fixed Income Securities Market Segment, and Growth Enterprises Market Segment. The first three were created in 2001 to cater for stocks of large and medium-sized companies, and corporate and government bonds. In 2013, the Growth segment was launched to give small enterprises an opportunity to also access the capital markets.

    The rate of price change in nse is too marginal. I think it should be capped to between kes 5-20/- based on diverse factors which includes new; segmentation information and performance; Not cents or a shilling. It is the role of NSe to caution investors against inflation and plateaued prices

    Hi, can you be posting me the companies which shares are likely to go up?

      Kindly contact me and I will advise you accordingly

      By end of this year, The Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE) will likely be the best perform ining bourse in Africa and possibly among the best 3 in the world.

      Qualitative easing by the US Federal Reserve (FED) of lowering the base rate will be the most consequential variable. Safaricom, Equity Bank, KCB and other high capitalised stocks will play a major role since they're attractive to foreign capital inflow.

      Easing of domestic interest rates will also cause a shift from fixed income instruments to stocks.

      *Kindly note this is the observation and projection by Ndindi Nyoro, Kiharu Mp. He is a reputable stocks Investment guru who made his fortune through stocks, he is run a successful stocks brokerage company before joining politics*
