Investment opportunities in Nigeria
With Nigeria’s GDP growing at an average of 7% between 2009 and 2012, and the government’s policy initiatives targeted towards an improved investment climate, many opportunities exist for players in private equity. FBN Alternative Investments’ focuses on opportunities across the entire value chain of these sectors:
Power The recent privatisation of state-owned power assets present opportunities to finance asset acquisitions and operating requirements of the newly formed companies and any associated service providers.
Oil and Gas The proposed Petroleum Industry Bill and local content initiatives should continue to provide platforms for increased participation by marginal players, who would require financing.
E-Commerce CBN’s cashless policy provides potential opportunities within the e-payments space.
FMCG With the largest consumer market in Africa, Nigeria remains very attractive for consumer based products.
Real Estate, Retail and Construction An estimated supply gap of 15-20 million housing units creates significant opportunities for innovative and affordable housing solutions.
