Repositioning Nigeria's Capital Market


Friday, November 25, 2016/7:18 PM /NASD Plc

The Securities and Exchange Commission, Nigeria (“SEC”, “The Commission”) at the final quarterly Capital Market Committee meeting for 2016 reviewed the progress of series of initiatives that came out of the 10 year Nigeria Capital Market Master Plan (NCMMP).  Significant effort has been put into repositioning the capital market along the lines required by the master plan:


  • The financial literacy group reported successful partnerships being formed at both government and private levels to increase the level of financial literacy and inclusiveness in the country.  With better literacy, investor understanding and confidence is improved.


  • Quoted securities were reported to be 98% dematerialized while NASD reported a steadily growing level of 15.7%. The e-dividend scheme has also taken off and has currently eliminated over ₦29 billion of previously unclaimed dividends


  • Useful formal interactions with numerous trade groups such as the Manufacturing Association of Nigeria (MAN), The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) and Bureau of Public Procurement (BPP) may well open the channel for increased market utilization for long term funding.

A thorough review of the Company and Allied Matters Act (CAMA) and the Investment and Securities Act (ISA) has also reached advanced stages. This should further expand the scope and relevance of the Capital market to funding growth businesses. Successful review of these laws may well open up the capital market to post internet age funding activity such as equity crowdfunding.

At NASD we are excited to be a part of the repositioning of the capital market. We believe that better understanding of the market by issuers and investors will position all players to contribute to the recovery of the Nations economy
