This book discusses the role of capital markets and investment banking in Nigeria, the largest frontier market economy in the world both by population size and GDP. Nigeria’s economy is projected to be among the top twelve largest global economies by 2050.

Offering a systematic framework combining conceptual principles with real practice, the book enables the reader to gain useful insight into how capital markets and investment banking work in the real world of a frontier market. The book provides a synopsis of the economic attractiveness, financial systems, intermediation, capital markets, as well as the regulatory framework within a frontier market. It explores capital raising through equity underwriting, debt underwriting, and private equity, paying particular attention to putting capital to work on mergers and acquisitions, project and infrastructure finance, and real estate finance. Further, it analyses asset management, pension industry, and securities trading in a frontier market. The authors use detailed case studies from Nigeria to illustrate the operations of investment banking in frontier markets. The cases, tables and charts serve as useful illustrations of the topics under discussion.

With the authors’ combined experience of over fifty years as economists, finance and investment professionals and in executive leadership positions in the financial services industry, this book will interest the academic community; professionals in the financial industry; retail and institutional investors interested in frontier markets, development practitioners in international organizations, and policy makers including central banks securities and capital markets regulators.
