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.

    Why sometimes a company is doing well in business but the share price stagnates at certain price for so long?

      Are you sure the company is doing well?? Then it means the stock is undervalued and you can gain by buying it for cheap. But most of the time it's because the company does not have room for expansion and investors have noticed it that's why the share price remains the same. Be careful, popular company does not mean profitable company!

    Since January stocks prices have generally dropped due to crowding out effect. Investors do not panic and start selling your shares at a loss. Wait for few months MKT is about to return to bull.

    What matters is your objectives in buying shares whether its for dividend or capital gain and time your money will be invested

    Does anyone know if the prices and volumes on this website are updated regularly? Also, are there any other websites where you can obtain pricing for the NASI stock? Asante.

    Is this data correct? The report says NSE closed today 13-Feb-19 at 99,455,006.00 with 445 deals while the NSE has actually closed with 1,154 deals and a turnover of 753,021,706.00.

      Not exactly. The report generation mechanism is a bit aggressive, generating the report as soon as NSE closes trading for the day even when some feed (which are often delayed) from our data providers are yet to be compiled. As more data come in, they add up to finally make up the grand tally.

    what happens when a company shuts down and I had bought shares, which I need to redeem.

      As an investor you are seen as part of the owners of the company so you will only get something after everybody else has been paid which is often nothing.
