As such, there is a greater communication and reporting between the merchant bank and the investor.
The new starting line-up is headed by real estate merchant banks, firms who not only assemble investors to do deals, but also use their own funds to take position in those deals.
These merchant banks buy properties directly and act as the managing partner.
Where the merchant banks have been even more successful, has been in their ability to lure huge sums of capital into the market.
In continuation of the company s tradition as a pioneer in the finance industry, FSDH has become one of the first merchant banks
to be awarded a licence in Nigeria since the repeal of Universal Banking by CBN in 2010, said FSDH.
