Addressing journalists on this year’s annual conference of stockbrokers, scheduled for November 16 and 17, 2017, the Chairman, Annual Conference Committee, Mrs. Lilian Olubi, explained that the conference had been put together to help deepen the market and expand the professional knowledge of the dealing members.
She said, “As one of the most prestigious professional bodies in the Nigerian financial industry, we have, again, sought to elevate the all-important debate of financial market development at our conference, with the aim of charting a course forward on policy alternatives.
“This is reflected in our theme for this year’s edition titled, ‘Adapting to Dynamic Changes in the Financial Market’. Our choice of this year’s theme was informed by the marked rapid pace of innovations in the economy and capital markets, which require operators – both dealing members and the investing public to keep abreast of these developments in order to make informed choices.”
