Future Businesses Will Be Financed By Venture Capital – Brown

Future businesses will be financed by venture capital, according to Ola Brown, founder of the Flying Doctors Healthcare Investment Company (FDHIC) and an investor working in venture capital and healthcare infrastructure. Brown holds a master’s degree in finance and economic policy.

Brown stated that equity-oriented stock market economies tend to be more innovative and dynamic during a panel discussion on the topic of “The Future of Money: Prospects for Equity Capital Raising in Nigeria” at the Investment Banking Awards Dinner, which was hosted at the Civic Center in Lagos State.

She stated, “Equity investment is not only vital for the individuals in the room, the Stock Exchange and Issuing Houses, but it is also important for building prosperity for Nigerians and the entire continent of Africa.

With a $500 million investment portfolio, Brown has made investments in over 30 firms in the health tech and fintech industries.

Haruna Jalo-Waziri, managing director and CEO of the Central Securities Clearing System (CSCS), also spoke at the event. She emphasized the importance of utilizing technology to raise equity capital for businesses and used the MTN listing as an example.

Danladi Verheijen, Managing Director of Verod Capital, emphasized the 40 percent increase in market turnover at the end of Q2 on the NSE compared to the concerns market watchers had in Q1 following the single-day 20 percent drop in March 2022 when discussing the necessity of liquidity on the Nigerian Stock Exchange to facilitate equity investors’ exit process.

The Association of Issuing Houses of Nigeria honored prominent figures in the industry’s growth and development over the previous year, in addition to the achievements of its members at the event.
