High net worth individuals are expected to grace the 9th edition of the Standard Bank West Africa Investors’ Conference scheduled to hold in Abuja and Lagos, bringing together foreign and local institutional investors, fund managers, regulators and policy makers, bankers, businessmen and captains of industry, among others, to engage and explore growth potential and opportunities in Nigeria.
The four-day event, tagged:”The Pathway towards inclusive economic recovery”, will run from February 27 – March 2, 2018, with Stanbic IBTC and Standard Bank officials leading a delegation of investors on a visit to the Minister of Power, Works & Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola; Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu; Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr. Godwin Emefiele; and the World Bank. This year’s edition will be capped with a factory visit to the newly commissioned $17million KelloggsTolaram plant, to showcase one of the most recent private sector led capital investments in the Nigerian economy.
Chief Executive, Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC, Yinka Sanni, said underlining the conference is the organization’s conviction about Nigeria’s growth potential, which it would be steadfast in deploying its international connections to ensure an increased inflow of foreign capital into Nigeria. This, he stated, requires putting before the global audience crucial information about the economy to aid their investment decisions.
