Director's letter

Dear valued client,

The global financial market place has a significant impact on our day to day lives but it is very difficult to participate and benefit from global trends as an individual.

Capital requirements, data costs and transparency are just a few of the many reasons why trading non-domestic products appears prohibitive.

To complicate matters further, converting in and out of the local base currency is inefficient and sometimes the gains made from the investment are significantly impacted by the simple process of exchanging currency.

Eagle Global Markets not only makes trading global markets more accessible but we also address issues such as a local currency risk and having to contract with foreign entities. We, importantly, are a local operator based in Lagos with staff who understand your needs at hand 24 hours 6 days a week.

We established EGM as we wanted to see online trading become Nigerian run for the Nigerian people. I and Eagle want to educate and nurture our clients into confident self-directed traders who want the freedom our multi asset, multi device trading platform delivers.

Together our trading can soar.
