According to SEC, the global financial sector is increasingly embracing environmental sustainability. Retail investors, therefore, are opting to invest in ways that benefit the environment and this trend is expected to gain more momentum in the future.

The extensive discussions surrounding the advantages, challenges, and regulatory recommendations associated with sustainable investments have contributed to this shift.

The SEC plays a crucial role in enhancing resilience in the Nigerian capital market while promoting investor education, enforcing protective regulations against fraud, and encouraging responsible investment practices.
