Proshare, a digital financial information hub focused on bridging the information gap between investors and markets through the development and deployment of credible, reliable and timely news, data, research & analysis, is set to host stakeholders during its Virtual Online Trading Webinar scheduled to hold on November 03, 2021, from 10am WAT.
In 2016, Proshare commenced the production of its Online Trading Ranking Report to assess the various trading platforms in Nigeria based on customers/users responses to its customer survey. The survey aims to evaluate objectively existing platforms, identify gaps and provide feedback for improvement and/or upgrade of the market platforms. In 2021, the customer survey and operator survey are ongoing. The research team hopes to launch the ranking report in November 2021 with a post-launch webinar to unpack the insights from the report and address critical issues around online trading in Nigeria across various global and continental markets.
The webinar, which will focus on the theme "Online Trading beyond Nigeria: The Case for a Unified Exchange", will have has its Keynote Speaker, Lina Tonui, Project Manager, African Exchanges Linkage Project (AELP), amongst other representatives from the SEC, NGX Exchange, FMDQ, NASD, AFEX, CSCS, CFS West Africa Limited, fintech and tech infrastructure organisations. The webinar will enable stakeholders to discuss various topics around the use of technology in securities trading and how the objective of unifying exchanges to increase liquidity across Africa could be attained in the light of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA). It would equally afford participants the opportunity to engage different stakeholders and address concerns around digital online trading.

Discussions around the implementation of the AfCFTA continue to support a single continent-wide market for goods and services, and promote the movement of capital and natural persons; there are talks about the integration of crucial stock exchanges across the continent to facilitate cross-border listing and region-wide securities trading.
To facilitate this, the African Securities Exchanges Association (ASEA), supported by the African Development Bank (AfDB) commenced the African Exchanges Linkage Project (AELP) to facilitate cross-border trading of securities in Africa to unlock Pan-African investment flows, promote innovations that support diversification needs of investors, and address the lack of depth and liquidity in Africa's financial markets.
Thus, this webinar will weigh in on the subject matter, particularly where fintechs facilitate securities trading on international exchanges to enable retail investors to trade global stocks.
