According to a statement issued over the weekend, the 6th edition of the 2022 world investor week (WIW) will hold between October 24 and October 28, 2022.

The commission added that it is coordinated by the International Organisation of Securities Commissions (IOSCO).

It said SEC, in collaboration with the Financial Literacy Technical Committee (FLTC), will join the rest of the world to celebrate the event. 

The event is themed: “Investor Resilience; and Sustainable Finance”. 

The commission, being a member representing Nigeria in the organisation, has lined up a series of activities to commemorate this year’s event.
