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.

    Hello,
    I am a self-taught financial analyst (I do it for fun), hoping I will save enough to start trading soon. My question is whether the NSE allows short-selling. If yes, which brokers offers it?

    Thanks.

    I need to buy shares.how do go about it and how much do I need

      In Kenya, the Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE) is where investors buy and sell shares. To begin trading, you need to set up a Central Depository System (CDS) account which is free to open. A CDS account is just like a bank account, but your CDS account is where your shares will be held. To open a CDS account, take 2 passport photos and a copy of your ID card or passport to a licensed stockbroker. The NSE has a list of brokerage firms on its website here: nse.co.ke/...firms/firms.html

      How much you need is dependent on the broker's minimum account balance but some are as low as 1,000 shilling. Typically, the minimum number of shares you can trade is 100. So if you want to buy Safaricom shares, the current share price is Ksh38.75, so you need Ksh3,875 plus broker commission and statutory fees which is about 2% so an extra Ksh77.50 making a grand total of Ksh3,952.50.

      Happy investing!!!

      You can start with as little as 500 shares on any given counter. Nevertheless, the higher the volumes bought, the higher the returns when the shares are on an upward trend.

    Watch out for KCB. Share price about to blow past 50 before August 2021

    1. DanDan
      May 26, 2021 08:47 GMT

      If it continues on the upward trend it will go past 54 . Given the price of equity at 43 KCB should be much higher than Equity
