Our strategy to fund management is to ensure that the contributors to the fund receive best returns comparable with other sources.  To achieve this, funds will be invested in three major areas to guarantee optimum return.  Sizeable proportion will be put in government securities for safety purposes while the remainder will be invested in quoted securities and real estate for maximum return.


Our responsibility in this area is to advise our clients and would be clients on the various investment opportunities and appropriateness of the investment decision being taken.  This we do through careful and thorough analysis of the opportunities both in the money and capital market as well as real estate of the economy.  Our analysts employ both fundamental and technical approaches to arrive at their conclusions.




We buy and sell shares on the instruction of our clients on the floor of the Nigerian Stock exchange.  Our guiding principle here is to buy low and sell higher.  The Nigerian Stock/Capital market has developed to the level where purchases and sales can be made within a week.  This has increased the liquidity and transparency of the market in addition to making the stockbrokers more accountable.


We do not just package but also manage investment portfolios on behalf of our clients.  Our driving principle is to ensure that maximum benefits comparable to other investments accrue to our valued clients through the process of selecting, evaluating and revising the portfolio from time to time, since our existence is necessitated by the need to create and maintain customers. The portfolios are designed to suit the risk-return preferences of our clients.
