Step 1 - Register with a Broker

The fastest way is to sign up with broker on the NSE.

The broker will open up a Central Depository System (CDS) for you.

If you have a KRA ID then it can all be done online. If not you will have to email the broker your government issued ID and passport photos.


Once you are registered with a broker, you will be able to start buying shares via their app or online portal.

Step 2 - Choose the shares you want to buy 

Preferably by the shares of companies you understand.

If you don't invest in a company you understand, it is akin to gambling just with less excitement. 


If you understand banking buy banks, if you understand farming buy agriculture shares e.t.c.
