Market Review: Getting the Capital Market Running; the Role of Investment Advisors
This edition of the "Market Review" features Mr. Akin Adeniyi, CIPM, President of the Association of Corporate and Individual Investment Advisers, as he speaks on "The Role of Investment Advisors in Improving Capital Market Participation".
According to Adeniyi, it is the role of the Investment Adviser to help investors take strategically focused, tactically aligned, and objectively considered positions in the capital market. He believed that the depth of knowledge on how the capital market operates alongside the processes makes the investment advisers different from other roles in the market.
Speaking on the CISIM bill, he said the CIIA has been engaging with the CIS and was optimistic that a resolution will lead to the standardization of the role of financial and market advisers in the country.
Akin Adeniyi said the CIIA was committed to increasing awareness of the benefits of the capital market to investors and promoting effective investor education.
