Nairobi Securities Exchange

The Nairobi Securities Exchange rebranded as part of their strategy to become a more inclusive securities exchange and also in commemoration of their 60th anniversary. The rebrand is expected to give the brand a more approachable look and generate increased public interest in the work of the NSE.

Brand Strategy

After 60 years of existence the Nairobi securities exchange still remained a functional, aloof brand that very few people could relate to. It seem liked a members club where only the who’s who would go play and reap huge profits.

The common man simply could not relate to it. And they wanted that to change.

We begun by giving a new positioning, as an enabler of opportunities no matter where you are from. Making the NSE the place where you come to DISCOVER OPPORTUNITY.

And we launched the new brand while celebrating their 60th anniversary. Now, we can safely say that The NSE is on its way to connecting with you.
