Nigeria’s stocks among world’s best performers

Nigerian Stock Exchange’s (NSE) ranking as the third best performing Exchange in the world for 2017 has continued to pave way for more international recognition and bi-lateral ties for the country, as the United States (U.S.) Consul General, F. John Bray, yesterday described Nigeria as one of its most important partners in Africa. And Nigeria’s stocks have been among the world’s best performers in the past four months, and foreign investors are a big reason for that. According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the New York-based financial software, data, and media company, said net foreign inflows to Nigerian equities totalled N337 billion ($940 million) last year, the first time flows have been positive since at least 2013.
