DERIVATIVES TRADING IN THE NSE - FULL DAY FORUM
Derivatives trading enables participants to enter into contracts for buying and selling underlying assets at a future time at a pre-agreed price determined at the time of contract initiation and execution. Participants are able to transfer risks, lower their transaction costs, stabilize market prices and speculate the value of their assets in future. Derivatives are aligned with Kenya’s economic growth objectives as set out under vision 2030. This is because they offer an alternative investment market segment for both local and foreign investors. Many large economies globally have strong developed derivatives markets and Kenya has invested in learning and bench-marking against such solid financial markets. The presentations will be delivered by representatives from Capital Markets Authority and Nairobi Securities Exchange to help participants understand fundamentals of Derivatives trading in the NSE, trends in the market, regulations, risks and opportunities among others.
