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.

    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

    Personally I've been a long time follower of NSE and by extension a student of Financial Economics. I have a strong love for asset analysis and valuation using conventional financial models including CAPM , APT, Gordons Model, Walters Model, Black-Scholes Method among others. i intend to be a broker as soon as possible to be able to invest on behalves of potential investors who may not be able to follow the trends of both fundamental and technical analysis of the market and make rational decision on buy and sell. as a broker, my major goal is to be eagle-eyed and be capable of identifiying availability of arbitrage opportunities in different sectors including exploring other forms of derivatives.

    To realize the above dream .i just want a company/Firm that can use my human resource capability for the time being as I also gain experience and get it right in the face of changing market risks. Anyone can make invitation.

      The brokerage fees are usually fixed, however for large stock purchases the brokers can negotiate.

      It is very hard or next to impossible to buy the market. Just buy the shares you've researched and selected when you have the opportunity. Then onwards you can average downwards if the price moves down
