Service Description

I have very strong research and working knowledge of the Micro and Macro-Economics of Banking, including Financial Risk Management, Financial Stability, Small Business Finance, Financial Policy and Regulatory Compliance. I have also handled a number of research and consultancy projects in Business Development and Planning, Enterprise Risk Management, and Business Analysis & Valuation, including Equity Research and Corporate Finance. I also have very good modelling and software skills. I am very good with E-views, SPSS, MATLAB, STATA and Microfit, and have considerable expertise in a range of time series and panel data models.

My PhD thesis focused on 'The Microstructure of Bank Lending to SMEs'. The research uses survey data to investigate the underwriting criteria, small business lending techniques and business model of banks.

I have worked and/or consulted for a number of high profile institutions, including Zenith Bank Group, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), National Australia Bank, University of Glasgow and Kaplan International UK.
