The theme of the event is “Budgets, Elections and Capital Markets: Risks and Opportunities in 2019”.
The seminar, the third of its kind by the SEC, which is scheduled for Tuesday March 19, 2019, will bring together experts with professional, policy and academic background in order to deliberate extensively on the implication of the budget to the capital market in Nigeria.
Also to be examined are the ways in which the capital market could contribute more meaningfully to the growth and recovery process the budget is intended to promote.
The Commission’s Budget Seminar Series has been established as a forum for evaluating the connection between the Nigerian capital market and the annual Federal Government Budget. A major aim is to identify how the capital market can contribute to and in turn benefit from the budget and its implementation.

In addition to the learning of the day, which will equip participants, a communique will be drafted and forwarded as the capital market inputs to the appropriate government and private institutions.
