- Firm Takes Investment Opportunities to Nigerians in Diaspora
Real estate investment firm, Fine and Country, has unveiled plans to attract leading Nigerian professionals in the Diaspora, sport stars, entrepreneurs and wealth advisors, among others, to opportunities in the country’s real estate industry.
The firm said it would take the country’s real estate market to the world by holding its next ‘Refined Investor Series’ in London, United Kingdom.
The Business Development and Sales Consultant, Fine and Country, Nonye Mike-Nnaji, said the real estate forum with the theme, ‘Taking Nigeria to the world’, would showcase current and upcoming projects in the residential and commercial markets at both the luxury and mid-market segments.
“The forum is for astute and aspiring investors to receive accurate and current market insight and lead conversations that will address the myths and misconceptions of investing in Nigeria, while exposing and connecting investors with safe, pre-qualified real estate opportunities from the leading and most reputable Nigerian developers,” she said.
She said the two-day forum would hold on October 6 and 7.
According to Mike-Nnaji, the forum will focus on issues that include how to navigate investments in Nigeria, which will be a highlight of the latest developments in the ease of doing business policy framework, spotlight on investing in Lagos, and residential property opportunities.
Others, she said, would be a review of the commercial office market and its future; urban regeneration and the suburban cities that would shape Nigeria’s residential real estate in the next 10 to 20 years; and why it had become important for Nigerians in the Diaspora to invest in the Nigerian real estate market.
She added, “The idea is to take all of Nigeria’s real estate market to the world. This series targets Diaspora Nigerians and maybe those who are not Nigerians, but are interested in the real estate market here.
“There are myths and misconceptions about investing in Nigeria. Though we have challenges, especially in land purchase, which create constraints for would-be investors, but we want to set this straight.”
Mike-Nnaji stated that to make the forum a success, the firm was in discussion with seasoned and astute investment experts, renowned veterans in the Nigerian real estate industry, and government ministries, both at the federal and state levels.
“Eko Atlantic City is a lead sponsor and we are in talks with other top developers in the Nigerian real estate sector,” she added.
