Friday, October 26, 2018    02:34PM  / By IAPM/CIIA


Barring any form of change in plans, activities are already in top gear by the governing council of the IAPM to host its 2018 members forum at the Oriental Hotel, Lekki Lagos come Wednesday the 14th of November, 2018.


This year's forum, which is a two-in-one event (2-1) is billed to update all stakeholders in the Nigerian investment management industry about the key reforms in the association, indicative of its consistent evolution of roles and responsibilities in aligning with the ever dynamic global investment management industry.


Part of this significant change falling under the auspices of market regulation will also be formally introduced as a major and veritable market-wide framework for the protection of investors.


This event, themed 'THE FUTURE OF INVESTMENT ADVISORY' going by its level of significance amongst the components of real market development initiatives currently overseen by the regulatory authorities will be having the Ag. Director General of the Securities & Exchange Commission, Ms. Mary Uduk as the Special Guest of Honour, with the Lead Speaker being Mr. Mobolaji Balogun of the ChapelHill Denham group.


In an initial statement released by the office of the association's president Prince Abimbola Olashore, other confirmed guests and speakers for the day include President of the Council of the NSE, Mr. Abimbola Ogunbanjo, the DG, Mr. Oscar Onyema, Mr. Bola Ajomale of the NASD, Mr. Bola Onadele (Koko) of the FMDQ OTC Plc, Mr. Banji Fehintola, President of the CFA Society Nigeria, Dr. Ore Sofekun, MD/CEO Investment One VC, Mr. Abubakar Jimoh, MD/CEO Coronation Merchant Bank, Mr. Adedapo Adekoje, President CIS and a host of other dignitaries.


The IAPM was formed by very prominent Nigerians in the finance industry some 37 years ago to champion the cause of investor protection through capacity building and advocacy at the highest policy levels of governance around investment matters in the country, especially pension funds and contributors welfare.


It is noteworthy to mention that these objectives have remained steadfast through the years albeit in the face of challenging global dynamics requiring equal and where apposite, greater focus and direction changes for the body. In this latest development, the IAPM is taking on the much greater and crucial role of a global standard curriculum administrator for the building of professional capacity particularly in the investment advisory practice in Nigeria as a means to meeting one of the most fundamental requirements of our local market development initiatives.


More information about this forthcoming 2-in-1 event is however expected to be shared with the public at a press conference scheduled to hold on Tuesday November 6th 2018 at the offices of the Emerging Africa Capital Group, Ikoyi Lagos.
