FMDQ Hosts 3rd Edition Of Nigeria’s Biggest Capital Market Event

FMDQ, Africa’s premier vertically integrated financial market infrastructure (FMI) group held the 3rd edition of its bi-annual Nigerian Capital Market Conference on November 7 at the Grand Ballroom of the Lagos Oriental Hotel. The 2019 conference themed “Nigeria: A Compelling Destination of Capital” (sic). The event attracted top government officials including Dr. Adeyemi Dipeolu, Special Adviser to the President on Economic Matters, Mr. Emmanuel Ukeje, Special Adviser to the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria and many international participants such as Mr. Bernardo Mariano, Managing Director, Equity Research Desk, Argentina. The key concern of organisers and participants was how to attract private capital, international as well as local, to invest the $100billion that Nigeria needs to spend on infrastructure every year. Speakers and participants also explored how Nigeria could strengthen the financial market tools and infrastructure to stimulate and support capital investment. Participants agreed that Nigerian governments should focus more on creating viable infrastructure Public-Private Partnerships to unlock private sector investment, including the ₦9trillion in Nigerian pension funds accounts.
