The 2015 report from United Capital group investigates the impact of the global economic and trade activities within advanced economies. It further dissects the impact of global financial activities on the Nigerian economy which is set to face one of the most difficult times in history, as global crude oil prices, a key anchor for fiscal strength and macroeconomic stability, continues on a downward trajectory in 2015.
This incisive report highlights how activities in the financial markets in Nigeria are likely to be more challenging, relative to 2014 as it is expected that the market in 2015 will be shaped by 4 major factors namely:
1) Post-election scenarios
2)Aggressive tightening by the CBN
3) Variability in foreign portfolio flows, and
4) the downward trajectory of crude oil prices.
These factors are largely expected to dictate movements in both equity and fixed income markets albeit in different degrees during the year.
