FTG, Feather Invest roll out solutions to ease liquidity issues in market

Investors and business persons in Nigeria, particularly those having links with the stock market, may have reason to smile following the introduction of innovative solutions to ease liquidity issues in the market.

Two foremost financial institutions, Financial Trust Group, FTG, and its partner Feather Invest, are the brains behind the long-awaited offerings that entail stock loans and international transfer services.

The revelation came in a statement jointly signed and made available to the media by the firms on Wednesday.

Speaking on the offerings, Financial Trust Group’s Executive Chairman, Alexander Omoniyi, disclosed that essentially the service was borne out of the need to help solve liquidity problems encountered during trade.

He said that “this solution is a dream come true for businesses and investors across business community in Nigeria.”

Omoniyi noted that “our Stock backed loans now allow us to offer clients fast and private loans backed by their traded stocks/bonds. Also private corporate loans for non-public companies have a simple and transparent process to follow. It is a dream come true for us and the business community in Nigeria.”

Corroborating, Feather Invest’s Executive Director, Mr. Wael Khattab, while hailing the synergy of the partnering companies, said they were looking forward to the product/services taking root across the country and beyond in no distant time.

According to him, the Nigerian economy remains one of the largest in Africa, and most promising in Africa.

“We are truly humbled by the trust and team spirit Feather Invest has with the wider FTC leadership to offer our stock loan and FOREX money services products in Nigeria,” he said.

While transacting in the coming months, the firms are hopeful of an environment of safety and transparency, having ensured regulatory buy-in.
