FMDQ Marks Global Money Week

As part of FMDQ’s commemoration of Global Money Week, an annual financial awareness campaign built to inspire children and young people to learn about money matters, livelihoods and entrepreneurship, the FMDQ Next Generation Financial Market Empowerment Programme (FMDQNext), hosted the Nigerian Economics Students Association of Covenant University at its business complex, Exchange Place. FMDQ-Next is FMDQ’s flagship corporate responsibility programme, a learning and development initiative aimed at promoting financial market awareness and literacy among students across all levels (primary, secondary and tertiary), as well as fresh graduates within the country.

The aim of the excursion, which has students across various levels of study, was to expose the participants to the operations of the Exchange, providing them with a history as well as the roles played by FMDQ and other financial market participants in the Nigerian financial market.

The day commenced with a tour around Exchange Place, where the Students where shown around the FMDQ Q-Hub – a bespoke trading simulation room for FMDQ-Next, Archives – a well-equipped history room which tells the story of FMDQ’s evolution, and Media Room – a world-class media room for the efficient dissemination of market-impacting news and information about FMDQ and its markets. They also experienced a Live Market Trading Session, where they were learnt about securities traded in FMDQ’s markets, amongst other things.

They also had an opportunity to learn about the different functions carried out within the Exchange, the different markets that exist, the market players, the importance of savings and investments, amongst others. The Excursion ended with a session with Executive Management, where the students were privileged to ask questions about the workings of the financial market as well as personal career planning.
