OBG Limited has announced the launch of its financial literacy Academy in Nigeria as part of efforts towards improving financial education in the country.
The announcement was made today during a press conference, as TechEconomy.ng gathered that it is partnering with OBG LLC in the United States.
The OBG Academy is a financial literacy institution that educates Nigerians with the requisite knowledge of the financial market, helping them to make informed decisions around trading and investments with the goal of achieving financial independence.
Dr. Damola Solanke, the MD /CEO of OBG Limited, said “the aim of OBG Limited is to provide financial literacy, through the academy to participants, leveraging market insights and innovative tools to train them on how best to navigate the new financial space.
At OBG, we educate and equip Nigerians with the knowledge they need to invest by themselves in the financial market so they can be independent.
We also provide live mentorships, where participants can access over 200 educators worldwide for increased knowledge and practical trading techniques.
Asides this, we provide support for members of the academy by offering tools and strategies using Artificial Intelligence to analyse the financial market.
Our long-term goal is to ensure that through the education offered at the Academy, people can take control of their financial lives and make informed financial decisions”.
With the launch of the academy in Nigeria, OBG Limited is offering a free training program to provide an overview of the financial market in Nigeria, providing the relevant knowledge needed to efficiently navigate the Nigerian financial services space.
Speaking further about the academy’s mode of operation, Dr. Solanke said “because our values are to empower, educate and enrich, our academy has simplified learning by providing academies to which participants can choose from depending on their preferences and needs.
What is most interesting is that anyone willing to participate in any of the programmes at the academy does not need to have a laptop because all programmes and tools can be accessed either by using a mobile phone.”
Around the world, finance and investment engagements are evolving in a dynamic fashion.
In view of this, there is a growing increase in efforts towards improving financial literacy as a means of empowering more people to have greater access to financial services and make informed financial and investments decisions.
With new digital technologies changing the value proposition of financial products, services and digital currency in the financial services industry, the launch of the OBG financial literacy academy in Nigeria will further expand access to financial knowledge, tools, and resources necessary for improving financial freedom in the country.
The OBG financial literacy academy is providing financial literacy to diverse beneficiaries through three main divisions; the digital currency academy, focused on crypto, the forex academy focused on the financial markets and the binary options academy focused on fast-paced markets.
