Afrinvest (West Africa) Limited, is set to present the 2017 edition of its yearly, Nigerian Banking Sector Report, at the London Stock Exchange (LSE) on October 27.

The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) , Godwin Emefiele, has been confirmed as the Special Guest of Honour for the 12th edition of the event that has come to be recognized as the leading and most incisive report on Nigeria’s banking industry, and a valuable reference for local and international investors in the Nigerian economy.
The Group Managing Director, Afrinvest, Ike Chioke, said this year’s report, titled: “Nigeria Reopens for Business,” is timely and instructive, as it is being launched at an important phase in the country’s economic resurgence, following the recent exit from a four-quarter long recession.
“We are proud to launch the 2017 Nigerian Banking Sector Report before a host of international economic and financial market experts in London, on the back of the nation’s recovery from economic recession, and we are confident that it would further enhance appreciation of Nigeria’s financial services sector.
“The report presents an optimistic outlook on the economy due largely to the positive performance of the banking sector. It offers critical insight on how recent gains in market performance can be consolidated to boost investor confidence and ensure sustained growth, and what possible threats can derail current positive trends,” he said.
Commenting on the collaboration with the NSE and Afrinvest, Co-Head, Emerging Markets, LSE Group, Ibukun Adebayo, said: “Our desire is to innovate with Nigeria, and we are keen to explore opportunities for London’s global investment community in Nigerian markets.
