The research stated that the ratio of gross national savings to the Gross Domestic Products in Nigeria was one of the lowest among some countries in the world.
In addition, with the impressive growth in the mutual fund in Nigeria in the last five years, the ratio of mutual fund assets to the GDP is estimated at 0.5 per cent.
