The Chartered Institute of Stockbrokers (CIS) has pledged to work with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in its desire to infuse capital market studies into the curriculum of schools in the country.
Already, the apex regulator of the Nigerian capital market, is developing a curriculum on capital market studies as part of the financial literacy programme, which is geared towards boosting investment education.
President of CIS, Mr. Dapo Adekoje made the pledge during a meeting between CIS and management of SEC in Abuja. Adekoje commended the SEC on its investor education initiatives and assured that the Institute was willing to support any programme that would help deepen the market.
According to him, we have visited some schools and realised that most students do not have elementary knowledge of the capital market. We believe that if Nigerians are aware early in life of the benefits of investing in the capital market, it will increase percentage of participation and also help to deepen the market.
In her remarks, acting director-general of SEC, Ms. Mary Uduk, said the Commission is open to any collaborative efforts that would increase financial literacy among Nigerians.
