10 Profitable Investments to Consider in 2018

By Dipo Olowookere

Leading financial services group in Nigeria, Investment One, has released a detailed list of 10 profitable investment vehicles for prospecting investors planning to invest in Nigeria.

The firm listed treasury bills, commercial papers, sovereign bonds, state bonds, corporate bonds, Eurobonds and equities, mutual funds, real estate and venture capital as investment opportunities investors should consider this year.

In the report, the investment firm highlighted financial trends in the Nigerian economy, noting, “2017 was reflective of a significant improvement in Nigeria’s oil sector.

“This led to the country’s exit from a recession, a boost in foreign exchange availability and an increase in foreign investor participation in the nation’s capital markets.”

Speaking on the report, Managing Director of Investment One, Nicholas Nyamali, said, “In Nigeria, there are lots of investment opportunities to benefit from. I believe that knowledge about investing should not be limited to a select few. Everyone deserves to know about investment opportunities that exist in this day and age.”

In reference to equities, the investment firm stated that equity markets were subject to volatilities in the short term and therefore advised investors to take a long-term view to investing in equities with a preference for fundamentally-sound quality names.

The report also advised small-scale investors to look toward the potential in the government bonds.

However, in the section on sovereign bonds, the report cautioned that, “Given the backing of the Federal Government, fixed income instruments are default risk-free but are subject to interest rate risk.”

Besides, the report listed a step-by-step process of how a potential investor could open an investment account, to take advantage of the opportunities listed therein, remarking that intending investors are not only advised on what to invest in, but also how to practically do so.
