Nigeria’s fixed income market has enjoyed significant attention over the past months with market capitalization growing from N12.9Tn at the end of 2019 to N16.4Tn YTD as a result of increased listing activity from the Federal Government and Nigerian corporates.
In line with efforts by The Nigerian Stock Exchange to further build capacity and enhance investors’ participation in the fixed income market, The Exchange will host a two-day webinar on Fixed Income for capital market stakeholders. The webinar which is in collaboration with the Debt Management Office and CSL Stockbrokers will hold on Wednesday, 7 October for Dealing Member Firms and Thursday, 8 October 2020 for the investing public.
The webinar will be hosted by the Chief Executive Officer, NSE, Mr. Oscar N. Onyema, and is expected to feature the Director-General, Debt Management Office, Ms. Patience Oniha as well as other industry players. The sessions have been designed to enhance dealing member firms’ understanding of the debt market structure, trading techniques, bond pricing, and the settlement of bond trades. On the part of the investing public, the workshop will highlight the opportunities and benefits in the Fixed Income Market. Interested members of the public who wish to attend can register for the webinar at http://bit.ly/nse-fixed-income-webinar.
The Exchange continues to provide avenues for engagement on its various products and services to enhance investors’ knowledge and deepen capital market activity even in these challenging times. Since the activation of its Business Continuity Plan which saw the transition to remote working and trading on 23 March 2020, it is indeed commendable that NSE has provided a platform to raise capital, transact business and build capacity virtually with zero disruptions.
