In line with the Central Bank of Nigeria's financial inclusion
target as well as to promote an efficient savings culture among Nigerians,
I-invest, a first-of-its-kind mobile application has provided a secure and safe
platform for millions of Nigerians at home and in the diaspora to invest in and
secure their future.
Developed by Parthian Partners, an organisation regulated by the
Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and FMDQ, I-invest allows retail
investors to conveniently buy and manage Eurobonds, Treasury Bills, Commercial
Papers, Equities, and many more without the help of a broker on a secure platform.
Through the I-invest app, Nigerians are able to access a plethora
of investments based on their risk appetite. Potential investors do not need
banking officials, fill lengthy documents or spend valuable time in banking
A major objective of the app is to enable Nigerians secure their
future through investment, an objective that very much aligns with this year's
edition of the Nigeria Economic Summit (#NES27) themed, "Securing Our
Future: The Fierce Urgency of Now." The summit is holding at the Transcorp
Hilton Hotel, Abuja from 25th to 26th October 2021.
Speaking at the Summit, Oluseye Olusoga, Founder of I-invest and
Group Managing Director, Parthian Partners, said I-invest is leveraging
technology for Nigerians to invest and build a savings culture. Olusoga said
the unique advantage of the App is the safety, ease-of-use and convenience, in
addition to being regulated.
"The #NES27 theme, 'Securing our Future' can be realised through
saving and investing for tomorrow hence I-invest has been designed to allow
users do this in the most seamless and convenient way, for not only the user
but for dependants as well. The application is built by Nigerians to help
Nigerians invest in Nigeria.
He added that, "The impact of the application on the Nigerian
economy is to create an environment where Nigerians are involved in the
development of the country through their investments, instead of taking their
money out of the country."
Olusoga explained that the app allows Nigerians to invest in
different sectors of the capital market in both Dollar and Naira instruments;
ranging from mutual funds to fixed deposits with different banks.
"I-invest is an App for everything financial services in
Nigeria, it even allows you to buy insurance. With the advent of BVN, we are
taking the advantage of technology to be able to invest directly. Users can buy
equities straight from the stock exchange, and Treasury Bills from any of the
accredited banks, all from the mobile App," he enthused.
Speaking on his expectations from the #NES27, Olusoga said he
wants Nigerians to be more aware and involved in tackling challenges facing the
nation in turn changing the country's narrative.
The I-invest App is available for download on Google Play or Apple
