            In Nigeria the insurance industry contributions to GDP is less than one percent despite high population of over 160 million people when compare to other Africa countries like  South Africa, Kenya, Morroco etc.

            On the other hand, the Pension Reform Act under the Contributory pension Scheme signed into law in Nigeria in 2004 has grown its investment assets to N7.8 trillion.

            As of today investment of pension fund in federal and state governments’ securities, has assisted Nigerian governments to cost-effectively manage their national debts, thereby contributing in the solving of their financial needs. The fund has come in as an independent financial intermediary, as the nation’s private business enterprises no longer rely on the banks as the sole sources of outside capital for the financing of their businesses. The fund has therefore provided a domestic source of borrowing, which doesn’t attract excessive high interest rate. The transfer of resources in favour of long term assets by the fund has significantly impacted on the nation’s GDP growth rate.
