In its determination to enhance market participation, the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) has launched an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered chatbot called X-Bot.
X-Bot, which is the first African securities exchange chatbot, responds directly and automatically to enquiries through Facebook Messenger.
It is designed to provide market participants, especially retail investors, convenient, faster and real-time access to data and information from the NSE.
Commenting on X-Bot, the CEO of the Exchange, Mr Oscar Onyema, noted that the introduction of X-Bot was in line with the NSE’s drive to improve market participation through greater access to market information.
“We aim for an exchange that is easily accessible and actively matches investors’ increased thirst for information and detailed disclosure information to make sound investment decisions.
“With X-Bot, investors in our market can access on-demand market information, news and events on the activities of the exchange and the various products and instruments that are listed and traded on it,” Mr Onyema stated.
He said further that, “The exchange has always been at the forefront of innovation, and the launch of the X-Bot marks yet another significant milestone in our continuous adoption of new technologies with a customer-centric focus to make financial services more inclusive and to provide a superior customer experience in the access and use of capital.”
On his part, Head, Regulatory Technology (RegTech) at the NSE, Mr John Adelana, stated that, “Customer experience is a key priority for NSE and we are deeply committed to constantly improving it. With the launch of X-Bot, NSE becomes the first African securities exchange to launch a customer interactive machine learning chatbot, which contributes to facilitating and accelerating the process of providing information to market participants.
