The Nigeria Finance space has witnessed tremendous inventions in the last couple of years. Innovative solutions in payments, loans, Insurance, AI,Data science etc have continued to disrupt the space and drive a new wave of excitement for the customers and other stakeholders. The trend has continued to attract global attention and the fintech industry revenue is expected to reach US$543.3 million in 2022 from US$153.1 million in 2017.
This progress notwithstanding, there is huge room for improvement; a huge number of people are still financially excluded, insurance penetration is still abysmally low and the country is still predominantly a cash-based economy. These problems present an opportunity for smart people on the continent to leverage and push the frontiers of financial services and create wealth for all stakeholders along the line. Illuminate is set in the same path and qualified participants will be drawn to individually or jointly address issues in the following focus areas.
SkyCapital is established to enable businesses thrive and help clients maximize their returns. The company is poised to build a firm uniquely equipped to achieve set objectives and be reputable for quality research, investment expertise and value-added services with excellent customer centric approach to clients locally and internationally.
