Afrinvest launches 11th Banking Sector Report in Lagos
Afrinvest (West Africa) Limited is set to launch the 11th edition of Nigerian Banking Sector Report on Wednesday, September 21 at the MUSON Centre, Onikan, Lagos and with the title ‘Searching for Investor Confidence’.
The report analyses the global and domestic economic and socio-political developments that have shaped economic performance, particularly relating to volatilities emanating from lower oil prices, Brexit and slowing growth concerns in the global economy.
Over the last decade, the Banking Sector Report (BSR) has focused on the changing dynamics within the global and domestic economy and the overall implication on the Nigerian banking landscape
Speaking about the launch, the firm’s Managing Director, Ike Chioke said: “The 2016 Banking Sector Report chronicles developments within the global and domestic economy in relation to monetary and fiscal policy responses to shocks while also contextualising the impact of policy decisions on domestic macro-economic variables.”
“Afrinvest Research is of the view that although some appropriate steps have been taken in recent months, the market is yet to respond positively, evidencing the lack of investors’ confidence without which neither the market nor the economy can be rebooted,” he said
Some panelists at the event include,former Deputy Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Prof. Kingsley Moghalu; Senior Fellow, Lagos Business School and Member, Monetary Policy Committee of the CBN, Doyin Salami; Group MD/CEO, Access Bank Plc, Herbert Wigwe; CEO, Economic Associates, Ayo Teriba; Regional Head of Economics, Standard Chartered Bank, Razia Khan and Chief Financial Officer, Sterling Bank Plc, Sulaiman Abubakar.
