Nigeria is now officially heralded as Africa’s biggest economy. Foreign success stories are rare but with a population of 175m, 107% mobile penetration and vast petroleum resources, it is a difficult country to ignore.

  • Real Estate Project: member of our delegation returned to consider a mixed use project in real estate
  • Knowledge and Data Gathering: gathered a significant amount of local advice on the dos and don’ts of investing in Nigeria
