Nigeria Investment Conference 2018

CFA Society Nigeria Investment Conference is the investment industry’s leading event that brings together senior executives, regulators, academics and policy makers under one roof to discuss topics that promote the development of the industry.

The theme of the 2018 Conference is “Let’s Measure Up”. 

The Conference will challenge our industry to measure up to the very high standards expected of a forward-looking industry. In a fast-changing world with global competition for capital, Nigeria cannot afford to lag behind. It can no longer be business-as-usual.

Highlights

  • The Conference will attract over 500 local and international attendees and provide a great platform for networking, business connections and professional development
  • With an impressive line-up of international and local speakers, the Conference will provide a platform for the private and public sectors to interact
  • Opportunity to hear about Nigeria’s Ease of Doing Business reforms as well as Monetary and Exchange Rate Policies in an election year
  • On-stage interview of His Excellency, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Chairman of Nigeria’s Economic Management Team.
