UBA Capital has marked a major milestone in its mission to promote and facilitate investment in Nigeria by launching the country’s first online trading platform with real time investment account funding functionality.
The platform, www.investnow.ng, is the only way for investors to be able to fund their investment accounts directly and instantly, without the need to go through an account officer in the option of a client-company funds lodgment. It also provides a live price feed (intra-day) for listed stocks, enabling investors to make informed decisions based on the latest data.
Speaking at the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) during the launch on Tuesday, UBA Capital Group CEO Oluwatoyin Sanni celebrated the milestone, saying: “Since UBA Capital was founded our mission has been to develop the capital markets in Nigeria in order to give the investing public the confidence to invest actively. The investnow.ng platform combines world-class technology with a robust client data protection and security framework in order to give our clients a seamless experience when processing transactions. Our clients will have access to research materials to make informed investment decisions.”
Sanni explained that with the coming of www.investnow.ng, UBA Capital clients will now be able to manage their portfolios online on mobile devices, tablets, laptops and desktop computers. She said that 24/7 connectivity to the portfolio is complemented by access to UBA Capital’s Online Customer Support via online chat functionality, so investors can talk directly to the customer service team who will manage regular enquiries, whilst more technical issues will be forwarded to account officers for swift resolution.
Ringing the closing bell, Sanni concluded: “By making investing in Nigeria quicker and simpler and providing real time data in order to inform investment choices, the investnow.ng platform brings us closer to our customers and we anticipate the transaction volumes rising over the coming weeks and months as our customers enjoy the flexibility and ease of building the Nigerian economy with UBA Capital.”
Managing Directors Wale Shonibare (UBA Capital Investment Banking),Tokunbo Ajayi (UBA Capital Trustees), Modupe Mujota (UBA Capital Asset Management) and Jude Chiemeka (UBA Capital Securities Trading) echoed their support for the platform and called out innovation as a key driver for all the businesses within the group to continue to provide outstanding quality of service and value to customers.
