The webinar is a financial literacy initiative for youth themed ‘Break Free’ along with the Founder of Twelve Vest, Mrs Tomie Balogun and the Head, Business Development, Piggyvest, Mr. Ayo Akinola who spoke on the opportunities in the country.
According to Benedict, “For those who don’t have a pension account, know what to look out for, you need to set your retirement goals and look at your pension to see how your pension manager is handling your funds and if there is need to change your manager because this is the right time to do that.”
The Unit Head, Brand & Marketing Communications, Sigma, Mrs. Yetunde Adebiyi, said: “We also want to help guide people on their finances and savings for a prosperous retirement.”
The Twelve Vest founder, Mrs Balogun said: “Nigeria is best positioned to take advantage of the opportunities we have today and for those thinking of leaving, please consider if the opportunities that would open up there would be better than what is possible in Nigeria.”
