The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), founded in 1960 as the Lagos Stock Exchange, services the largest economy in Africa. A registered company limited by guarantee, the Exchange provides access to capital for Nigerian companies seeking to take advantage of the capital market to fund their business expansion. Since the deregulation of the Nigerian capital market in 1993, foreign capital has freely been allowed to flow into the country enabling investors of all nationalities to participate. Also, to enhance liquidity, the NSE has operated an automated trading system since 1999, allowing dealers to trade live through a network of computers connected to its central terminal. All listed companies on the NSE are included in the NSE All-Share Index (launched in 1984 with a base value of 100) - the benchmark index for the Nigerian stock market. Stock prices and indices are published daily by the NSE on the Nigerian Stock Exchange Price List.

    Where can I start investment and how do l start?

    1. DanielDaniel
      Dec 11, 2019 13:16 GMT

      if you have more question ask me on twitter @DanielAdaise
      I have been in local and foreign markets for over 5 years now.

      Now to answer your question,
      Investing in the Nigerian market has become extremely easy. To break it down;

      1. Investing in the Stock market-
      you can easily open an account with as little as N5000 over the internet.
      check out - I personally use this account for myself and my investment club.

      2. Investing in Treasury bills and euro bonds - you can easily purchase treasury bills and other money market assets classes on the iinvest app
      requirements : you minimum amount here is N100,000
      Download the iinvest app. it was created by Sterling bank in partnership with Pathiers partners.

      3. Bonds and Real Estate Investment Trust(REIT): many stockbrokers offer the opportunity to buy bonds and real estate investment trusts.
      I still recommend meristem here

      4. Mutual Funds: Many companies provide mutual funds you can easily register for.
      the most popular mutual fund should be the Stanbic Ibtc money market mutual fund.
      if you don't want to manage your money yourself, this is a good place to go.

      5. Investing Abroad from Nigeria: there are so many apps that make investing in other countries extremely easy
      I personally recommend the Trove app. This app allows you to invest in US and China countries for as low as N1000

      you can also check out Bamboo app created by Flutterwave.
      the Bamboo app offers a wide range of international companies for you to trade in.
      for now, you can only trade with Bamboo

    My peaple, I really want to know if some from Nigeria can invest from the index of African stock exchange.
    I want to buy a share from Zambia?

    1. DanielDaniel
      Dec 11, 2019 13:25 GMT

      if you have more questions reach me on twitter @DanielAdaise

      Now to answer your question.

      In my opinion, Zambia should be a company you aspire to buy shares in. You should look at the macro economics of a country and the potential for exponential growth. I recommend South Africa, Egypt, Nigeria and even Rwanda (even though Rwanda is very shaky).

      But if you still insist to invest in Zambia,
      Standard chartered bank is a good place to start. This is because they cover a lot of companies in Africa. Walk into any of your standard chartered bank and open a bank account and a stock brokerage account. you can easily en-quire from the customer care officials they should give you further guidance on the requirements

    Please i want to know the methods used by the Nigerian stock exchange to compute the index numbers

    1. OjiOji

      It's a market capitalization weighted index where they give weightage to each stock based on its market capitalization. By this ratio if a stock rises or falls it will correspond with the movement of the index as well.
