Breaking news: NSE Brokers release financial results


Kudos Stella, these are two steps forward. Next thing is to introduce a uniform financial proforma. 4 lines of income (brokerage fees, advisory, profits/gains on investments and other); 4 lines of expenses (staff, admin, financial cost and other), capital and cash flow statements.

I will update as they come in, but clearly, a lot of questions/eye-brow raising stuff. No more than Renaissance. It made Ksh885m profit in investments in H1 2008 and zero in H1 2009! Believable? Well...

Although not a broker, Dry Associate is an interesting case study for where some of these brokers need to go to. Very little dependency on brokerage commission… primarily placement (of CPs I think) but very stable. Perhaps a merger candidate for Sterling IB.

Eagerly awaiting D&B, Gengis and Ngenye Kariuki's numbers...
