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.

      You will need to do good research before making that decision. Please note that this is the worst the market has ever been. At this point it is rather easy to buy shares at throw away prices because most of the shares now have a PE ratio below 5.

      You can buy shares in Kenya through Kenyan stock brokers. I would recommend Genghis Capital who have an application known as g-kuze which is available on app store. After registration on the app you can transfer funds using your visa card and you will be able to place orders.

      Here is an old article when the indices were launched: The constituents may likely not be the same since the indices are recapped on a semi-annual basis, so you might try recomputing by using the information here:

    Best shares to invest in and price per share

      This depends on what you are after. If you are after dividends purchase dividend stocks, if you are after capital appreciation buy growth companies.

      Another simple way is to buy shares of companies of products and services you use. For example which bank you use etc.

    Can I trade buy /sell online?

    1. MMKMMK
      Jul 7, 2020 13:45 GMT

      Yes. Most if not all stockbrokers at the NSE support online trading and is as simple as logging onto the online trader or downloading the mobile app of your stockbroker
