VFD Group is a financial services focused proprietary investment company that creates value by working within Nigeria’s informal financial sector to create innovative products and solutions that are accessible to the everyday Nigerian citizen and entrepreneur.
VFD Group was founded by skilled professionals with diverse experience, qualifications and backgrounds. As a team, they identified the gap between both individuals and small businesses and their banking experiences, and set out to bridge the divide.
We discovered that despite the size of the formal financial sector, the informal sector is greater still, and that there are immense opportunities for value creation within this informal sector. In light of that, we developed a business model that allows us to operate in every area of the financial industry through our subsidiaries, providing Financial Advisory, Asset Management, Currency, Real Estate, Debt Services and Private Funds Management Services, taking deposits and providing loans at very competitive rates.
VFD Group was incorporated with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) on 7th July 2009, and commenced business operations effectively on the 1st of January 2011.
