Lagos | Nigeria: Kroll, the world’s leading business intelligence and risk solutions firm has seen a spike in demand for its services in Nigeria. The expansion of investment advisory services to indigenous and international corporations and institutions is significant to the growing interest in the country’s economy.
Speaking during a visit to Lagos, Kroll’s Senior Consultant, Mark Simmonds highlighted Kroll’s depth of knowledge and experience in Africa’s most dynamic marketplace and noted a growing demand for specialised consultancy projects for Nigerian clients in the private and government sectors, as well as investment advisory support.
“International and local investors are attracted by Nigeria’s increasingly diverse economy. There is a visible growth in consumer markets which has resulted in the development of a vibrant entrepreneurial workforce and is contributing to Nigeria’s economic progress”, Simmonds added.
The recent democratic change of government administration has significantly boosted the confidence of investors with a keen interest in Nigeria, and Kroll is supporting its clients in navigating through investment opportunities in the country.
As a leader in business intelligence and risk solutions, Kroll provides strategic advisory services that help clients make intelligent investment decisions.
Kroll’s recent work in Nigeria has included an overseas investment advisory project for a Nigerian business investing in India and the Middle East. On behalf of the investor, Kroll drew upon the expertise of its multi-cultural team and cross-border capabilities to develop an understanding of the investment target’s profile, activities, operations and vulnerabilities in the relevant markets outside Nigeria.
