I-invest, a mobile application, has provided a secure and safe platform for millions of Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora, to invest in and secure their future.
  
The application that was developed by the Parthian Partners, and regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and FMDQ, allows retail investors to conveniently buy and manage Eurobonds, Treasury Bills, Commercial Papers, Equities, and many more without the help of a broker on a secure platform.
 
A major objective of the app is to enable Nigerians secure their future through investment, an objective that very much aligns with this year’s edition of the Nigeria Economic Summit (#NES27) themed: “Securing Our Future: The Fierce Urgency of Now.”

Speaking at the Summit, Founder of I-invest and Group Managing Director, Parthian Partners, Oluseye Olusoga, said I-invest is leveraging technology for Nigerians to invest and build a savings culture. Olusoga said the unique advantage of the App is the safety, ease-of-use and convenience, in addition to being regulated.
  
“The #NES27 theme, ‘Securing our Future’ can be realised through saving and investing for tomorrow hence I-invest has been designed to allow users do this in the most seamless and convenient way, for not only the user but for dependants as well. The application is built by Nigerians to help Nigerians invest in Nigeria.” he said. The I-invest App can be downloaded on Google Play or Apple store.
  
Olusoga added “The impact of the application on the Nigerian economy is to create an environment where Nigerians are involved in the development of the country through their investments, instead of taking their money out of the country.”

Olusoga explained that the app allows Nigerians to invest in different sectors of the capital market in both Dollar and Naira instruments; ranging from mutual funds to fixed deposits with different banks.
