- Stockbrokers offer a service which gives retail and institutional investors the opportunity to buy and sell company equities. Stockbrokers can either trade shares on a stock exchange or over-the-counter. This will be determined by where they can find the best price and liquidity.
- There are different services a stockbroker can provide at a commission (fee):
- Advisory service where the broker recommends which stocks an investor should trade (buy or sell).
- Execution only service involves the stockbroker completing trade orders submitted by the investor.
- Discretionary service where the stockbroker undertakes the entire trading process on behalf of the investor. The broker manages every aspect of the investor’s account.
- Stockbrokers in Kenya are regulated by Capital Markets Authority (CMA).
