The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Nigeria pursuant to the powers conferred on it by the Investments and Securities Act (ISA) 2007 directed all Capital Market Experts or Professionals to provide updated information of their companies/firms in December 2016 and February 2017.

However, it was observed that a large number of Capital Market Experts or Professionals comprising Reporting Accountants, Solicitors, and Estate Surveyors/Valuers etc. did not respond to the request.

The underlisted firms are by this circular required to indicate their interest in retaining their registration with SEC as Capital Market Experts or Professionals by providing updated information on their firms using the link provided below;

They are also reminded that the minimum number of Sponsored Individuals required for their registered function is three (3), including a Compliance Officer.

In recognition that a larger number of Capital Market Experts or Professionals have offices in Lagos, the Commission in January 2017 relocated its Registration and Inspectorate Divisions to Lagos. The concerned Capital Market Experts or Professionals are enjoined to visit any of the Commission’s Offices listed below for further clarification:
