West Africa’s oldest and largest stock exchange also confirmed that Aigboje Aig-Imoukhuede takes over from Aliko Dangote as the President of the NSE Council.
Prior to Mr. Aig-Imoukhuede’s appointment as NSE Council President, he was the 1st Vice President of the NSE Council. He stepped down as CEO of Access Bank in December 2013.
Under the leadership of Aliko Dangote, the NSE moved from being the #4 bourse in Africa, in terms of market capitalization, to being the #2 bourse on the continent, only behind the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).
The NSE is in its 3rd year of a transformation program. In 2013, as part of this transformation program, the NSE signed on NASDAQ OMX, the world’s largest exchange company, to deploy the X-Gen trading plaform for the NSE. X-Gen is based on NASDAQ’s X-Stream trading platform. X-Stream is a cutting-edge, high-performance, robust, scalable, multi-asset, and multi-market trading engine.
