According to data from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the total net asset value (NAV) of the 106 mutual funds traded on the Nigeria Stock Exchange (NSE) declined from N1.48 trillion as at31 December 2020 to N1.36 trillion as at30 April 2021.
In fact, mutual funds in Nigeria saw their total net asset values (NAV) decline by 8.54% in the first four months of 2021. For us at Stanbic IBTC Asset Management, this implies that there is still a low penetration level of mutual funds in Nigeria and call for an urgent demand for growth in mutual funds investment. It also highlights the need for collaborative efforts between asset managers and regulators to foster this said market growth.
