He said this year’s programme is aimed at looking at various government policies, as they relate to investment of pension and insurance funds, and also examine various investment options, as well as the effectiveness of regulatory bodies – NAICOM, PenCom, CBN, SEC, and others in the performance of their statutory roles.

“Pension and Insurance have been the two industries closely related because they are guided by the same principle: security and investment; unfortunately they have been badly hit by missiles emanating from misinformation, corruption and mismanagement. All these thrive because people have not been properly informed and educated. This led to various level of fraud in both the pension and insurance industry. Because both beneficiaries and claimants have suffered not only in silence but also in the open, hence the inevitable explosion leading to exposure of various forms of corruption in the industries.”
