Financial Services Sector

Africa’s financial services sector will grow strongly over the long term. Strong economic fundamentals and technological innovation have enabled us to build one of the largest pan-African banking networks, providing commercial banking, investment banking, asset management and insurance services across the continent. Our investments in the financial services sector include:

Africa Prudential Plc (AP Plc)

The only listed share registration services company in Nigeria. Africa Prudential pioneered an Electronic Share Registration Office that allows round-the-clock access to share registration data for its clients in the Nigerian capital markets. In 2013, in a bid to deliver more value to stakeholders, Africa Prudential acquired UAC Registrars, the oldest non-bank affiliated registrar in the Nigerian capital market.
