The summit, which coincides with the 10th anniversary of the Pension Reform Act 2004, is organised in collaboration with the Nigeria Pension Commission, as a yearly event that would bring together leading players from Africa’s pension sector, as well as key institutions across business and finance to exchange expertise and tap into emerging opportunities.
The financial institution said its sponsorship was in demonstration of its long standing commitment to the Nigeria Pension Reform which began 2004, as deliberations at the event are expected to rekindle investors’ confidence in the economy and facilitate renewed partnerships across the globe.
The spokesperson of the FirstBank Group, Mrs. Folake Ani-Mumuney, said that the lender’s support for this auspicious event accentuates its stance to offer the best quality custodian services and optimum protection of contributors’ assets.
But the Managing Director, First Pension Custodian Nigeria Limited, Kunle Jinadu, pointed out that the company has been at the forefront of promoting the pension reforms since its establishment in 2005 and would continuously drive pension fund administration and investments in Nigeria and beyond.
“First Pension Custodian is well positioned to drive engagements in pension reforms with its team of financial experts from diverse backgrounds and extensive experience in investment management, pension fund administration, corporate finance, relationship management, auditing and risk asset management,” he said.
“Our support for this prime event is part of our contributions towards promoting relevant platforms to stimulate policies which would build our economy,” he added.
