The registration of the latest firm is part of the sustained initiatives of the FMDQ Exchange to revive the CP market for the purposes of providing corporate and commercial businesses with the opportunity to meet their short-term funding requirements.
The Exchange has also, through its Quotation Service, been providing investment stakeholders and market participants with credible and real-time information as part of its commitment to facilitate transparency in the fixed income market space.
On its part, Parthian Partners is providing competitive wholesale brokerage services in the African OTC markets.
The company is also trading in Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) Bonds and Treasury Bills, State Government Bonds, Local Contractor Bonds, Corporate Bonds and Eurobonds, as well as providing regular market updates and liaising with market participants and regulators, amongst other investment services.
