Chief Executive’s Message

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our digital learning platform, The Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE) Digital Academy.

Over the last few years, financial markets regionally and globally have undergone drastic changes primarily driven by technological innovations and product development. Equally rapidly evolving market dynamics accelerated by shifting investor needs are increasing the need to constantly enhance knowledge on investment products and services. It is against this background that we have established an interactive digital training platform called the NSE Digital Academy. The NSE Digital Academy will leverage on technology incorporating a fully automated Learning Management System (LMS) that will support virtual training and certification as well as a trading simulator which will offer participants the opportunity to have a virtual trading experience.

The Academy will provide customized basic and advanced investment certification trainings across various areas in finance, investments, securities trading technology, corporate governance among others to users. Enrolled users will equally have the opportunity to access learning materials including audio and video content to enhance understanding of various subjects. Additionally, the NSE will provide Continuous Professional Development (CPD) points for all the trainings that will be undertaken on the NSE Digital Academy. The NSE PLC is currently an accredited Continuous Professional Development provider by the Capital Market Authority (CMA), the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI), and the Institute of Certified Investment and Financial Analysts (ICIFA).

The trading simulator will provide a stock simulation platform where users will have a virtual trading experience, learning how to invest and build portfolios using real time stock price information provided by the NSE Automated Trading System.

The launch of this academy has increased our public education touch points enabling us enhance market knowledge and awareness, build capacity as well as drive retail and institutional participation on the NSE.

We believe that through this platform we are empowering you by offering convenience, unlimited access as well as the ability to take charge of your learning and education journey.

Take advantage of this amazing product and kick start your journey today. The NSE Digital Academy will surely shape better futures.
