Most Kenyans are not well informed about financial investments, particularly regarding shares and the stock market. In this podcast, the Kenyan Wallstreet Resident Economist sat down with Felix Ochieng, an investment banker and stocks trader.
They discuss the fundamentals of stock trading to explain what it means to invest in shares of public listed companies. They then dive into the pros and cons of trading, and finish by discussing the current situation of stock trading in the Kenyan market. A brief overview is also provided on how one can begin investing in stocks at the Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE).
In the next episode, Felix will cover some of the basic trading strategies an investor should consider when deciding to buy stocks for the first time.
