      Go to the NSE webpage at You will see a list of trading participants who are stockbrokers. Register a brokerage account with one of them and then you can start buying and/or selling shares of any of the listed equities on the stock exchange including those of Centum as well. All the best!

    Investing in Centum doesn’t make sense -at 455 Ksh per share in 2006 and a drop to 23 Ksh in 2020 -does not make sense!Someone convince me.

      You see a huge share price drop as alarming, i see it as an oportunity to buy a piece of the company at a discount.

      Log onto or visit the bank/brokerage firm which is holding the deceased CDS account. Success in your quest.

    Is Centum a good buy or wait ?

      Buy only if you intend to hold long term, i.e over 5 years. We still have elections coming up next year which is usually bad new for many business. However, this also means its a perfect opportunity to buy low and ride the wave up as the economy rebounds thereafter. So the question is, can you hold your nerves for the long-term hold?

      Get all relevant documents such as death certificate, next-of-kin declaration, etc. and go to the NSE office for further assistance.
