History

NSL Capital Partners Limited (“NCAP”/”the Company”) was incorporated on 21st February, 2014 to anchor the Issuing House License of its parent company, Nigerian Stockbrokers Limited (NSL). This is to allow NSL to concentrate mainly on Stockbroking activities. Prior to the implementation of the Nigerian Enterprise Promotion Act, 1972 (“indigenisation exercise”), NSL, which was established in 1961, was wholly owned and managed by Financial Holdings Nigeria Limited (“FHNL”). Since its establishment, NSL has handled several landmark transactions in the past under the Issuing House License, the latest of which was the N40 billion Special Placing for Wema Bank Plc. in 2013.

Capital Status
