Uduk noted that the capital market had been properly positioned to attract Nigerians and other investors to provide benefits to those who invest in it.
She said that the commission had sustained its investor’s education programme to assist people to understand issues around the capital market.
The acting director-general said that some of the safest areas to invest in the market were in mutual funds and collective investment schemes.
”There is the added and all-important purpose of ensuring that the gains of your participation, be it dividends, proceeds from share sales/transfers accrue to you seamlessly, without sweat and in the shortest time possible.
”The purpose is also to ensure that investors do not fall victim to the antics of fraudsters who purport to be able to double any amount of money you make available to them as investment value.
”We want a deeper market and we believe that with these combinations, we will reduce the number of ponzi schemes coming up and reduce the number of investors putting their money into the schemes,” she said.
