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 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.

    I kindly request that you update us [shareholders] on companies annual general meetings as the aproach as well as dividends payments. Many are the times we miss those AGMs. Keep us updated.

    Hi. Is it legal for some stock brokers to charge a fee on account maintenance annually while others don't? One such broker is Dyer and Blair Investment Bank. They are charging a annual account maintenance fees to their account holders. Frankly speaking, I find this strange because they always get their pie after one buys and sells shares. They deduct the required percentage after every transaction. To me, this appears as if they are trying to raise funds to cater for their rates and rents owing to the fact that they are located in a expensive office in Westlands. In such a case, what can one do? I am thinking of finding another broker who does not charge for account maintenance. Please, advise accordingly.

      I don't see anything wrong with that, frankly. What they get per transaction is their brokerage commission which is determined by the NSE not them. The annual account maintenance fee is obviously for the service they are rendering to you. (Paying premium fee for quality service is better, no?) You may change your broker if you think the fees are too much but I think it's legal for them to do so.

      I'd double down on banks. They have large assets and are considered essential economic institutions. Also consider volume traded on a given day. The more volume the better.

      They are two separate companies now as a result of a demerger. CFC Insurance officially changed its name to Liberty Kenya Holdings Limited in June 2012.
