Event Details

The Nigerian Structured Products Summit will feature high-profile domestic and international capital markets and regulatory experts from Nigeria, across Africa, Europe and the United States with support from financial institutions, law firms and regulatory authorities.

The Summit aims to foster enforceability of a wide range of financial contracts in Nigeria and clarify the position of financial collateral arrangements with a view to increasing the attractiveness of the Nigerian markets to both local and foreign investors as well as to build an understanding of the role of more efficient financial solutions in risk management.

Specifically, the Summit is set to cover and enlighten the Nigerian capital market on issues relating to derivatives, encouraging market participation and fostering stronger regulatory frameworks, all with a view to deepening the market. The objective is also to encourage discussions with respect to these types of transactions and to enhance local knowledge and expertise.

The Hosts of the Nigerian Structured Products Summit recognise that the Nigerian exchange and over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives market, is poised for significant growth and are organising this Summit to foster this at the highest standard, with important regulators, industry leaders and members of the private sector attending to support initiatives in this respect.
