A virtual event aimed to address gender investing gaps among women in Nigeria will take place next week.
The webinar is being hosted by ZIMVEST (Zedcrest Investment Managers) and will hold for two hours, a statement from the organisation disclosed.
The new-age digital wealth management firm hopes to use the programme slated for Tuesday, March 30, 2021, from 11:00am to 1:00pm via zoom to address the financial gaps that exist among young and middle-aged women in the country.
Some experts in the financial industry have been lined up to speak at the event and they include Professor Olayinka David West, Senior Fellow and Academic Director, Lagos Business School (Pan Atlantic University); Ms Adesola Adesakin, founder and CEO, Smart Stewards; Ms Mojisola Bakare, General Manager, Corporate and Investment Banking, Sterling Bank PLC; and Ms Sandra Ezekwesili, On-Air Personality, 99.3 Nigeria Info FM.
It was stated that Prof. David-West will discuss Financial inclusion: why are women disadvantaged and how do we close the gaps?, Ms Bakare will talk about Bridging the investing gap among women – What should success look like for women, at various levels? while Ms Adesakin will shed light on the Financial habits of highly successful women: How can women invest at different levels and stages.
Commenting on the event, which is to be hosted by Ms Ezekwesili, the Private Wealth Manager of Zedcrest Investment Managers, Ms Nwaka Uzum, said her company is committed to educating and supporting its existing and potential investors by providing financial advisory as a value-added service to them.
According to her, there is a chronic funding mismatch between impactful businesses (including small businesses owned and managed by women) looking for growth finance, and investors decrying the lack of bankable opportunities in frontier markets.
She added that the role of women in Nigeria’s socio-economic development cannot be overemphasized; hence, women need to prioritize financial education and investing to salvage their financial future.
The statement noted that the webinar is in celebration of Women’s History Month and would be educative, informative and enriching for intending participants.
The blockchain brings new financing options to the business market. For example, Bitcoin Cash casino has adapted to only using cryptocurrency. This way, it makes it easier for their customers to deposit and withdraw in a BCH casino. Entrepreneurs have taken note of this and are looking to invest more in crypto than in fiat markets.
