Investment One Financial Services Limited was incorporated in 2008 as GTB Asset Management Limited, a wholly owned Asset Management subsidiary of Guaranty Trust Bank (GTBank) to undertake the businesses of asset management and securities brokerage. In 2011, following new regulatory requirements, GTBank divested from the Company following a management buyout and the Company’s name was then changed to Investment One Financial Services (Investment One) with the long term goal of becoming the leading non-bank financial services group in Nigeria.
Recognised as one of the fastest growing companies in Nigeria by ALLWORLD in 2013, Investment One is today a leading player in the Nigerian financial services industry with distinctive offerings in wealth management & trust, mutual funds, pensions, real estate, private equity/venture capital, investment banking and securities brokerage.
The Group’s business model is simple: attract investor’s funds through its wealth management, mutual funds and pension businesses; seek attractive returns through its investment management (equities & fixed income), real estate and private equity/venture capital businesses; and provide financial advisory and intermediary services through the investment banking and securities brokerage businesses.
Since the divestment of GTBank in 2012, the Company has transitioned from an asset management company to a financial services group by expanding its businesses in pursuit of its goal to become the leading Non-Bank Financial Services Group in Nigeria and a one-stop investment shop for its customers
