The company was incorporated in March 1993, commenced operations in 1996, registered by the Nigerian Stock Exchange and licensed by the Securities and Exchange Commission to provide investment banking services.
Futureview has strong business relationships with banks such as Access Bank Plc, Fidelity Bank, Guarantee Trust Bank (GT Bank) and United Bank of Africa (UBA) on the local banking terrain as well as international players like Standard Chartered Bank (UK), United Bank of Switzerland, and the International Finance Corporation (IFC).
In 2003, Futureview was one of the two Stockbrokers/Financial Advisers appointed by the Federal Government of Nigeria to advise on the issue of the 1st NGN150 billion bond to the public, the largest ever offering of debt securities in the Nigerian capital market.
As a choice investment banking firm, a large number of banks in Nigeria relied on the Issuing House, Investment Advisory and Stockbroker services of the company to drive their capital raising exercises in compliance with the FY 2005 minimum capital requirements stipulated by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
Our skill in Mergers & Acquisitions, packaging IPOs, Rights Issues and Private Placements ensured that our banking clients were adequately capitalized in compliance with the CBN directive.
Post consolidation, Futureview has remained one of the leading investment banking firms anchoring a vibrant market share of capital raising exercises in the banking sector and other sectors of the Nigerian economy.
