This compilation by PositiveNaija aims to provide a reliable guide on Nigerian apps (mobile applications) for investing in stocks, treasury bills and other financial products in Nigeria.
Stock: A stock (also known as equity) is a security that represents the ownership of a fraction of a corporation. This entitles the owner of the stock to a proportion of the corporation’s assets and profits equal to how much stock they own. Units of stock are called “shares”.
Bond: A bond is a fixed income instrument that represents a loan made by an investor to a borrower (typically corporate or governmental).
Treasury Bills: Treasury bills are tax-free, low risk, short term debt instruments that are issued by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) for government budget deficit.
Apps with user ratings less than 3.0 (assessed alongside with user feedback shared on the app store) are not included in this compilation. Apps that have not been updated for a long time are also not included. In instances where user ratings and feedback are unavailable on the app store, we encourage extra vigilance by (prospective) users.
