These are the Top 10 Investment Banks in Nigeria.
Banks generally go beyond the commercial banks that we are all familiar with. There are generally different types of banks but majority of us are of the idea that we relate with commercial banks on a daily basis and they have our money with them so others are probably not necessary and we don’t need to know about them.
Aside commercial banks, we also have investment banks. There are Investment banks in Nigeria just like they are in other countries across the world. Investment banks are financial institutions that give advice on financial transactions to individuals, corporate bodies and the government. An investment bank can also act as an intermediary between investors that are willing to invest their money and companies looking to finance their company. It can also act as the company’s agent in the issuance of securities. An investment bank also assists in mergers and acquisitions between two or more companies.
