The Stanbic IBTC boss noted that since the country got out of recession in 2017, there had been a lot of optimism about the growth trajectory, but that the trajectory was stifled by external and internal headwinds last year.

“Nigeria was affected by the emerging market sell-offs, which highlighted the risks of investing in emerging and frontier markets and caused foreign investors to be more cautious” she said.

“The increase in the anchor rate by the Fed Reserve Bank also encouraged them to invest more in the United States, considering safety.

“The risk aversion typically associated with pre-election years has also been a factor. The continued challenge with the farmers/herdsmen clashes, perceived private sector challenges with regulators, and stifled consumer spending have also led to more caution and reduced foreign investment.”

Ogungbesan stated that opportunities abound in the country, adding that proper due diligence ought to be undertaken before investment. She maintained that investors should seek to partner credible local stakeholders that will assist them in achieving their objectives.

“With our experience, which spans several decades, we are willing and able to hold our clients’ and other prospective investors’ hands to guide them through the process.”
