According to the Managing Director, Vetiva, Mr. Damilola Ajayi, the listing of the Vetiva S&P Exchange Traded Fund is in line with the Federal Government’s plan to enhance financial inclusion. “For the first time in Nigeria, investors now have access to Federal Government bonds through the Vetiva S&P Exchange Traded Fund”.
