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.

    Best shares to trade NOW are small-cap stocks. Fifteen of the 24 firms that have gained in value since the start of the year include HF Group, Kapchorua, Kenya Orchards, Eveready and Flame Tree.
    Big stocks like Safaricom, Equity, Co-operative Bank, KCB, and East African Breweries have shed value since January 2023.

      Hey you will still need to be registered with a broker. The only difference is that this is an online service.

      Most brokers are now accessible online or mobile apps.

      However, there are other products you can bid for without going through a broker i.e. bonds via CBK's DhowCSD platform.

      According to NSE, the company is closed down having been struck off the register under the Guernsey laws thus ceasing to exist as a company.

      Currently they have not been able to follow up on any shareholder interests.
