NSE Derivatives Summit


NSE Derivatives Summit

Date: 12th July 2019

Venue: Radisson Blu Hotel

The Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE)
 was granted approval from the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK) and the Capital Markets Authority (CMA) to launch the Derivates Market.

The launch of the Derivates Market was a significant milestone in the growth and deepening of capital markets and the wider Kenyan economy. Derivatives Markets provide new opportunities to investors, enabling them to better diversify their portfolios and allow for the efficient deployment of capital. Furthermore, through the Derivatives Market, investors will be able to form expectations about underlying assets in order to the price risks.

NSE is now the second African exchange to offer exchange-traded derivatives, further cementing Kenya as a financial and investment hub.
