Jude Chiemeka, the divisional head, trading business, NSE, said, “We launched this event four years ago to create awareness on the critical application of market data in making sound investment decisions while highlighting the various data products available in the Nigerian marketplace.
“As technology evolves, what can be considered useful data is changing. It is, for this reason, we instituted the NSE Market Data Workshop to inspire market participants and the wider ecosystem to become more innovative in the use of market data as they strive to leapfrog performance through the use of the many market data solutions offered by the NSE.”
Chiemeka added that the workshop would present a high-profile business networking opportunity for market stakeholders as it had become a signature industry event due to the quality of its content, speakers, participants and publicity received since its maiden edition in 2016.
