In this episode, the Hisa team discusses the decline in turnover on the NSE by 50% to 66 million shares valued at Ksh 2.3 billion, mainly because in the week before, we had a lot of activity in the banking sector which declined last week. NASI rose slightly upwards 0.05%, while the NSE 20 share index was down about 10.71%. Most of the contracts on the derivatives markets expired last week, with 300 hundred contracts traded on the exchange, valued at Ksh 10.4 million. Finally, we discuss why the shift from Equities to Fixed Income as fund managers and investors look for stable returns, closing with discussions on what to expect in the government’s plan to allocate Ksh 5 billion to Kenya Power, the Jubilee-Allianz deal, which kicks in today, and Centum following last week’s changes.
