The Nigerian Stock Exchange, at an interactive session on Thurday, launched X-Academy, a knowledge-platform designed to provide education services to individuals who want to gain a better understanding of the various aspects of the capital market. X-Academy offers a wide range of courses geared towards bridging the knowledge gap of dealing members, issuers, investors and the general public about products and services of the capital market.
The establishment of X-Academy is in line with the Exchange’s tradition of pioneering far-reaching innovations within the Nigerian capital market. It also feeds directly into the National Financial Inclusion Strategy which was launched by the Federal Government in 2012 to reduce the number of adult Nigerians who are financially excluded, from 46.3 per cent in 2010 to 20 per cent in 2020.
The training programmes at X-Academy would provide individuals and businesses with a robust and effective array of training solutions that would ensure participants were abreast with trends in the rapidly evolving financial markets.
According to Mr. Oscar N. Onyema, OON, Chief Executive Officer, X-Academy would provide individuals and businesses with a robust and effective array of training solutions that would ensure participants were abreast with trends in the rapidly evolving financial markets. “As a socially responsible organisation devoted to enhancing the fortunes of Nigerians and our investors, we are confident that participants of programmes offered by X-Academy will be better positioned to make informed financial decisions”, Onyema said.
The NSE has stated that X-Academy is a crucial step to enhancing financial literacy levels in Nigeria and equipping professionals with requisite skill sets to deliver innovative solutions for the challenges confronting our financial sector.”
The first training from the X-Academy, titled , is scheduled to hold from 12th – 15th June 2017 at the Civic Center, Lagos.
