- NSE Holds Fixed Income Trading Workshop
The Nigerian Stock Exchange held a fixed income trading workshop on Monday to enhance the capacity of dealing members.
The NSE said in a statement that the decision was in line with its commitment to improve the capacity of its members and enhance investors’ participation in the fixed income market.
The statement read in part, “The event witnessed over 200 participants across the capital market community. Stockbrokers, dealing members and other key capital market stakeholders explored opportunities available in the fixed income market.
“During the workshop, delegates were exposed to the opportunities inherent in the fixed income market, the future potential of the market, and the potential for onboarding retail investors into the capital markets.
“It also gave people an opportunity to address the concerns of the market, while the NSE will get to work on building the capacity of its members that are interested in trading fixed income on the Exchange.”
The NSE stated that all fixed income securities (with the exception of zero-coupon bonds) provided some form of regular interest payments to investors.
It said it made the fixed income market attractive to investors whose main investment goal was to provide themselves with a steady income.
