2 INTRODUCTION I consider it expedient to begin this exposition by expressing my profound gratitude and appreciation to the Planning Committee of this years Forum for considering it fit to accord me the privilege and opportunity of mounting this highly esteemed and prestigious podium to share my views with an audience considered to be most enlightened and discerning in the Industry. 2 Dauda Kolapo Adedeji FCA

3 Introduction Contd. The choice of this topic is timely and thought provoking for various reasons; the global financial crises of 2008 is yet to be forgotten by many investors whose losses are difficult to quantify with precision, the economy of Nigeria is passing through momentous period in her history and facing tremendous challenges regarding economic stability and the need to transcend the political and socio economic problems. The country will only need to focus on its trajectory to achieve its vaunted milestone of becoming the 20th economy in the year 2020 generally codified as 20:2020. 3 Dauda Kolapo Adedeji FCA

4 Definition Investment is the current commitment of funds or other resources to project or venture in the expectation of realising future benefits. Therefore, the purchase of shares or bonds would be an investment; just as the purchase of a car or a house, taking a life insurance or making a deposit in the bank or opening a savings accounts etc. There are three stages involved in the consummation of an investment decision namely: planning, execution and controlling of events to attain certain selected investment objectives. Planning because the investor will select from a wide variety of options combining either high risk with high returns or low risk with low returns etc. 4 Dauda Kolapo Adedeji FCA

5 Definition Contd. Executing because the investors will have to mobilise the available resources to carryout the objectives. Monitoring and controlling is designed to ensure that actual performance of such investments is consistent with the predetermined objectives. Investment decision entails the gathering of vital and critical information to engender efficient evaluation of the available alternatives. The criteria for distinguishing among these alternatives are established through the use of expected utility derived from the trade –off between returns and risk of a particular project. 5 Dauda Kolapo Adedeji FCA

6 Definition Contd. Specific objectives: All investment objectives must be specific rather than being broadly defined for example the level of income must be stated and quantified. Measurable Objectives: The Investment objectives must be measurable in terms of earnings yield or dividend yield. Achievable Investment objectives: The objectives developed in an investment policy must be feasible. The implication is that there should be adequate resources to acquire the asset necessary to make the target income. Realistic Investment objectives: The Investment objectives should not be based on illusion of what cannot be attained within the budget line. Time bound Investment objectives: All forecast and projections on the achievement of certain level of income and /or yield must be within a foreseeable period. 6 Dauda Kolapo Adedeji FCA

7 The Nature Of Investment
The Real Asset: The material wealth of the society is ultimately determined by the productive capacity of its economy, that is the goods and services that the members can create. This capacity is the function of real assets of the economy which consist of land, building, machines and knowledge that is available for use. Financial Asset: These are sheets of papers or entries in our computers that does not contribute directly to the productive capacity of the economic units. However, they are the means by which individuals hold the claim on real assets. 7 Dauda Kolapo Adedeji FCA

8 The Nature Of Investment Contd.
Financial assets therefore are represented by such instruments as ordinary shares, Treasury bills, Commercial papers, Treasury certificates, debenture stock, Government bond and development stock etc. Real Investment represents the purchase or construction either in parts or in full of specific land, residential, commercial or industrial buildings, plants or equipment or other personal possessions. While the real asset generate net income to the economy, financial assets simply define the allocation of wealth among investors. 8 Dauda Kolapo Adedeji FCA

9 The Nature Of Investment Contd.
Investment in property: The ownership of property is usually evidenced by a title document and registered under the land use Act. Any land purchased after 1976 can only confer a leasehold interest on the owner because the freehold interest is theoretically vested in the Federal Government, The document evidencing the title under the land use Act is the certificate of occupancy issued by the State Government. Freehold and Leasehold properties: A Freehold Title gives the holder what is absolute ownership of the property.   9 Dauda Kolapo Adedeji FCA

10 The Nature Of Investment Contd.
Owner occupier: The owner-occupied property has undoubtedly proved to be the most profitable long term Investment for most personal investors. There is therefore common aspiration among the individual investors to own and occupy their first property. Investment Property: This is land or building or part of a building (or both) held by the owner or (by the lessee under a finance lease) to earn rentals or for capital appreciation or both rather than for: Use in the production or supply of goods or services or for administrative purpose or sale in the ordinary course of business 10 Dauda Kolapo Adedeji FCA

11 Investment In Chattels
Chattels are moveable tangible personal possessions other than real estate and commodities. Making investment in Chattels are commonly known as alternative investments. Most investments in Chattels are done as a way of protecting the purchasing power of money because they have the potential to appreciate in value. Eg Gold, Jewelries,Paintings etc. 11 Dauda Kolapo Adedeji FCA

12 Investment Objectives
Risk and safety of Capital: The investor must determine the level of risk he is prepared to take in a relatively efficient and informed capital market, risk tends to be closely correlated with returns. While some experienced investors may prosper on their wits alone, most high returns may be perceived as compensation for the level of risk. Investors who wish to assume low risk will probably confine most of their investment portfolio to short term instruments in which the repayment is expected with a certain period. It is not only the inherent risk in an asset that must be considered but also the extent to which that risk is being diversified away in the portfolio.   12 Dauda Kolapo Adedeji FCA

13 Investment Objectives Contd.
Attitude to risk and uncertainty: There are basically three dimensions to risk namely risk seeker, risk averse and risk neutral for those who are indifferent to the risk situation. Tools For Incorporating Risk And Uncertainty: Sensitivity analysis: This takes different but uncertain factors each at a time and compute the change that would be needed in that factor before the original decision is reversed. Expected Value (EV): An expected value shows the weighted average of all possible outcome and it is very useful tool when a decision is repeated. However, the method does not take account of the risk in the range of potential outcomes. 13 Dauda Kolapo Adedeji FCA

14 Investment Objectives Contd.
Simulation analysis: This is a modelling technique which shows the effect of more than one variable changing at a time and gives information of the likely out come to enable the investor takes a more discerning decision. Scenario building: This technique to risk analysis looks at a number of different but plausible future situations. Maximin Rule, Maximax Rule and Minimax Regret Maximin Rule: Here the investor is selecting the investment alternative that maximises the minimum pay off achievable. This method is appropriate for the pessimistic investor who has risk averse and seek to attain the best out of the worst result. 14 Dauda Kolapo Adedeji FCA

15 Investment Objective Contd.
Maximax Rule: This technique is applicable when selecting the alternative that maximises the maximum pay off achievable. The method is suitable for the optimistic investor, risk seeking investors who wants to take high risk with the aim of earning very high returns. Venture Capitalist are example of this class of investors. Minimax Regrets: This technique tend to minimise the maximum regrets with the opportunity that was lost because a wrong investment decision was taken.   15 Dauda Kolapo Adedeji FCA

16 Investment Objective Contd.
Current income versus capital appreciation: Although the decision concerning current income or future appreciation of capital is closely linked to risk appetite, yet the factors are managed independently. Investors looking for immediate income may have to invest in matured industry e.g. manufacturing. On the other hand the investor looking for capital appreciation will need to invest in emerging industry such as the telecommunication Broadband eg. DISCOS, GENCOS. Liquidity Consideration: Liquidity is measured by the ease of the investor in converting the investment to cash within a short time at its fair market value or with a minimum capital loss. 16 Dauda Kolapo Adedeji FCA

17 Investment Objectives Contd.
Most financial assets provide a high degree of liquidity. Shares and stocks can generally be sold at their market value on the floor of the exchange. Similarly, government bonds can be discounted quite easily thereby providing liquidity for their investors. Investors must carefully examine their individual situation to determine the need for liquidity.   17 Dauda Kolapo Adedeji FCA

18 Investment Objectives Contd.
Short term or Long term Orientation: Market strategies may be short term or long term in scope. Those who engage in short term are called traders. These are those who use the technical analysis and charts to evaluate the performance of the stock. Those who take long term perspective identify the sound and strong organisations for buy and hold strategies. Taxation factors: Investors in the high tax bracket have different objectives than those in the lower tax bracket or tax exempt charities, foundations, or similar organisations. The high tax bracket investor (high net worth individuals) may prefer the government development stock or state bond because of the tax effect (interest is not taxed) They will also prefer the real estate because of depreciation and interest write off or investment that provides tax credit or tax shelters.     18 Dauda Kolapo Adedeji FCA
