Proshare Nigeria Limited, having measured up to all CFI’s award selection criteria and based on voting(s) by CFI.co readers, subscribers, visitors, contributors and clients to their award nomination request; some of which includes the World Bank, IMF, PIMCO, CBN, NNPC and Ernst & Young to mention a few (see list of partners here) has been so recognised as the “Best Capital Market Services & Solutions Team in Nigeria - 2014”.
Following the shortlisting of Proshare Nigerian limited and eight (8) other websites for the award category of the Best Capital Market Services & Solutions Team - Nigeria 2014 Proshare was confirmed the winner of the Award on Friday, June 20, 2014 and has since been featured in the latest edition of the CFI magazine (page 70) along with other winners including a knowledge partner for our Bonds market - Dunn Loren Merrifield who won the award for the “Best Corporate Finance Advisory Team, West Africa 2014’.
Recall that the CFI awarded Zenith Bank Plc as the Best Commercial Bank, Africa 2012 in view of its sterling work at home over the past two decades and given the excellent progress it has made in other markets within Africa and further afield.
The 2014 award recognises Proshare as a performance driven organisation providing effective finance solutions to the Nigerian Market that further helps contribute to economic growth, by ensuring users of their website receive best capital market information while providing market solutions through their wide range of service offerings.
In a citation given, the CFi.co judging panel was very impressed by Proshare’s “commitment to and clear focus on the ways in which critical information, when properly presented, can provide an empowering force for good. All societies benefit in this way and the need for such expertise as offered by Proshare in the continent of Africa is obvious”.
The Founder/CEO of Proshare, Olufemi Awoyemi in his remarks upon receiving the award said this must be dedicated to our subscribers, readers, staff and client/supporters such as Zenith Bank Plc, UBA Plc, Dangote Plc, First Bank Plc, the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) and entities/individuals too many to mention; who challenged and encouraged us to meet this market need.
Awoyemi considers this a worthy acknowledgment of the ‘labour of love’ engagement that sought to create a bridge between data and wealth creation after over eight (8) years of extant dedication to educating, enlightening and empowering the investing publics through timely, reliable and credible information at a significant cost. The award he said, must therefore be seen as a vindication of the selfless work by a past and present team led by Reshu Bagga, Alero Ogor and Isaac Osagie, who went beyond and above the call of duty to actualise / deliver the service to date.
Recently, Proshare launched the first-ever subscription based data, analysis and news portal dedicated to the Nigerian capital market - #TheAnalyst which has been reworked to ensure the dissemination of Real Time stock quotes from the NSE ahead of further developments that seeks to aggregate/support the direction and traction of the new capital market Nigeria requires.
