Chapel Hill Denham is a leading independent investment banking, securities trading, and investment management firm.

The growing size and prosperity of the middle classes across Nigeria offer an incredible reward to those managers that can address the needs of institutional clients and retail investors in the country. The investment industry is a natural beneficiary of the increasing growth in wealth and savings among the middle classes across many emerging markets. A consistent focus on under-served segments which have had limited access to capital can lead to significant gains in economic development and impact. Historically, there has been a lack of an investment culture in Nigeria and across Africa, but even a small shift can present significant opportunities given the scale of Nigeria’s population.
