Investment Banking

A global company with a local focus

Investment Banking

The industry competencies which drive the thrust of FSDH’s lending business reside in the Corporate Group (CBG). The CBG business focus is the result of the bank’s strategic adaptation of the ‘Follow the Cash and Value Chain’ philosophy and centres around providing support to existing and emerging corporate clientele in various sectors of the Nigerian economy including Energy, Telecommunications, General Commerce, Agro Allied, Manufacturing, Power and Real Estate and their value chain members. Our Corporate Division was created to strategically manage our corporate clients and optimises the institutional knowledge resource base that the bank has built up over the years through its leading financial trading franchise. This knowledge provides our analysts with an holistic perspective of the clients’ needs thus enabling us to offer superior value adding solutions.

International Trade Services

We recognise that each business has its own specific needs and our trade finance desk offers the products to meet clients’ international trade requirements which help mitigate risk, ensure payment security and maximise working capital. Our trade advisors have an in-depth knowledge of the intricacies of the Nigerian and International markets and can provide you with the advice that you need to safely engage in your international trade transactions using our robust pool of correspondent banks.
