It all started in the 19th century when the royal Niger company was established and was granted a monopoly on trade in the Niger Delta region which they later involved in different business activities such as mining and agriculture.
Later in 1960, the Nigerian stock exchange was established as the Lagos stock exchange (LSE) and consequently, in 1977, it was renamed to the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE).
Currently, the NSE provides a centralized system of securities and facilitates the mobilization of capital for economic development.
