“CFA Society Nigeria, under the presidency of Mr. Banji Fehintola CFA, is a very prestigious addition to Wiley’s CFA Society network, working together to help grow the membership and to ensure candidates in Nigeria have access to best in class study and learning solutions.”
John Wiley and Sons Inc., (NYSE:JWA) (NYSE:JWB) on Monday 14 May announced its partnership with CFA Society Nigeria — one of the largest, most innovative and influential CFA Societies in Africa.
Having grown their membership base rapidly in recent years, the Society, under the leadership of its forward-thinking Board, are now looking to ensure the CFA community plays a pivotal role in the finance community across Nigeria and the wider region. The Society recently opened their new offices in Lagos, and in 2018, CFA Institute will, for the first time, hold examinations in Nigeria in June. Through the significant and continuous outreach by the Society, Nigeria can look forward to developing one of the most robust finance communities in the region.
The exclusive partnership with Wiley, will ensure that Wiley supports the efforts of the Society, whilst providing access to its gamut of educational and professional development tools and materials through the Society and in particular, exclusive access to its CFA Exam Review learning solutions.
Mr Banji Fehintola, CFA, President of CFA Society Nigeria, noted, “Nigerian finance professionals deserve and expect world-class learning and professional development solutions. With significant progress being made by the Society with regards to new offices, the new exam centres in Lagos and then Abuja later in the year, there will be an unprecedented growth in the demand for the world’s premier finance qualification – the CFA charter – in Nigeria. The goal of the partnership with Wiley is to ensure that the Society is in a position to maximise the success of our future finance leaders.”
Wiley, as the Knowledge and Learning partner to the Society, will help populate a top class library at the new offices in Lagos, support the Society’s University outreaches such as its annual Ethics Challenge and the Research Challenge, and provide exclusive access to their state of the art learning platforms and materials to help candidates prepare for the CFA examinations.
“Wiley have the unique pedigree as leaders in finance, business, technology and accounting publishing. Coupled with their innovative technology and infrastructure to support our strategic goals, CFA Society Nigeria looks forward to this exciting new chapter in the history of Nigeria’s investment industry” followed Banji Fehintola.
“With our close affinity to the finance community, through a prestigious portfolio of finance and business titles, as well as of course, the specific relationship with the CFA qualification, with the CFA investment series and the CFA examinational preparatory solutions, Wiley is in equal measure, both delighted and honoured to be partnering with CFA Society Nigeria,” said Aziz Tayyebi, Director, International Development, Wiley. “Knowing that we are supporting like-minded and such innovative partners, fills us with confidence that we will have a real impact in upskilling the finance community in Nigeria, which we know will have a significant impact on the future economic growth of Nigeria and therefore the region as a whole.”
