NSE Holds Seminar on Fixed Income Trading

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

A workshop mainly to deepen the knowledge of stockbrokers in the nation’s capital market was organised today by the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE).

During the seminar, more than 200 stockbrokers gathered to learn more on how to tap into the market segment with the aim of rendering better services to their clients.

All fixed income securities, with the exception of zero-​coupon bonds, provide some form of regular interest payments to investors.

This makes the fixed income market especially attractive to investors whose main investment goal is providing themselves with a steady flow of income.

At the forum today, participants were given hints on how to explore opportunities available in the fixed income market, as well as address the concerns and build the capacity of our members interested in trading fixed income on the NSE.

Experts in the field were on ground to lecture the stockbrokers on the importance of the fixed income market and how they can help clients invest in the market segment.

The management of the NSE explained that it organised the workshop in line with its commitment to improve the capacity of its members and enhance investors’ participation in the fixed income market.

The seminar, which was held at the Stock Exchange House in Lagos, was attended by some senior members of the stock market regulatory agency.
