Adeyemi ‘Ade’ Adebanjo has been an equity investor in the Nigerian stock market for over fifteen years—with commercial and hands-on experience. His odyssey in equity investment started from a young age, watching his father trade stocks, followed by acting as a proxy for him at companies’ annual general meetings. From that point on, he remained single-minded in his determination to continue his father’s legacy by trading stocks and actively propagating the ideals of stock investing.
Ade is the founder of Equity Ideas, a consulting firm that specialises in the provision of end-to-end investment advice, and/or investment planning solutions to equity investors, helping them fulfil their needs and reach their financial goals. His working knowledge of the Nigerian stock market has been helping local and foreign investors amass wealth.
Besides investing, Ade is a technology man—a software development engineer in test, with vast experience in working with various test automation tools, frameworks and software products. His passion for technology has made him a radical advocate of improvement and sustenance of the digitised Nigerian stock market.
