The Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE), established in 1954 as Nairobi Stock Exchange, is the leading stock exchange in East Africa. It is based in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya - one of the fastest-growing economies in Sub-Saharan Africa. The NSE, which demutualized and self-listed in 2014, operates under the jurisdiction of the Capital Markets Authority of Kenya, and is governed by an 11-member board of directors. The Exchange offers a world class trading facility for both local and international investors looking to gain exposure to the country's rising economy. In 2008, in order to provide a comprehensive measure of the performance of the stock market, the NSE introduced the NSE All Share Index (NASI) as a market capitalization-weighted index, with a base value of 100, consisting of all listed securities, effectively making it the benchmark index for the Kenyan stock market. 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.
