Sovereign Finance Company Limited in its continuous bid to equip its clients and investors on investment strategies recently hosted a highly successful webinar, titled; “Sustainable Investment Strategies for Changing Times,” marking the commencement of their webinar series for the year.

The virtual event featured esteemed members of the firm’s top management alongside distinguished experts in finance and business.

The webinar aimed to explore emerging trends in the investment landscape and underscored the significance of adapting investment strategies to evolving market dynamics.

Managing Director, SFL, Mr. Olusola Dada, in his presentation, noted that in today’s rapidly changing environment, investors must stay informed and agile to successfully navigate uncertainties and optimize investment portfolios.

He commented, “Spreading investments across various assets or asset classes is crucial to reduce risk.” This approach, he comments, lessens the impact of a decline in any single investment, especially during uncertain times like economic downturns or market volatility.

Dada recommended four sustainable investment areas, namely defensive sectors, diversified portfolios, real estate investment trusts (REITs) and emergency savings and liquid assets.

He said: “Investors should consider investing in defensive sectors that are less sensitive to economic downturns, such as healthcare, utilities, and consumer staples. These sectors tend to have more stable demand for their products and services regardless of economic conditions.”

On strategies for sustainable investments, Sovereign Finance recommended navigating uncertainties with diversification, Chief Operating Officer, LiquidCrest Microfinance Bank, Mr. Temidayo Osanyintade explained that diversification is a proven investment strategy that involves spreading investments across different assets or asset classes to reduce risk.

“By diversifying your investments, you spread risk across various assets, reducing the impact of a decline in any single investment. During uncertain periods, such as economic downturns or market volatility, having a diversified portfolio can help cushion the impact of adverse events,” he added.
