The Nigerian capital market mirrored the performance of the larger economy, which continued its moderate path of recovery. Despite challenges faced, The NSE continued to execute on the its 2018 – 2021 Corporate Strategy, geared towards (a) enhancing the customer experience across the value chain, (b) reorganization for success, and (c) capitalizing on mission critical strategic initiatives (i.e. Demutualization).
In 2019, we continued to enhance our product portfolio, orchestrated ground-breaking investment forums and listed some of Africa’s largest companies. This resilience saw the market capitalization increase by 20.42% to N12.92Tn from N10.72Tn in 2018. Turnover also increased by 389.26% when compared to 2018. Capital raising was dominated by the Federal Government, being responsible for 60% of bond issuances during the period in a bid to finance fiscal and infrastructure deficits. The presentation will be attended by stakeholders from the stockbroking community, analysts, media and others
