NEW YORK, July 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- New York-based broker-dealer, Marco Polo Securities, is pleased to announce that Coronation Securities – a major Nigerian financial institution – is expanding its access to US investors via the Marco Polo regulatory platform.

Marco Polo has relationships with dozens of securities firms throughout Europe, APAC, Africa and the Americas, and enables clients to market their local capabilities and products to international investors. In turn, the solution gives investors access to local exchange-listed securities as well as locally originated private placement and M&A investment opportunities.

Uwana Ekpat, Head of Coronation Securities, said, "Coronation Securities values adherence to regulatory requirements in all markets we have a presence in. In joining the Marco Polo platform we will be able to extend our reach in the US investment community while ensuring compliance with US regulation."

Steve Carlson, Chairman of Marco Polo Securities, said, "Global investors have limited access to Africa's growing capital markets. Nigeria is a major part of Africa's growth excitement and we welcome the opportunity to add Coronation to our expanding platform of African securities firms. Coronation is one of Nigeria's premier financial services groups providing local markets execution, debt and equity research, wealth management as well as merchant banking products. We look forward to helping them market these products to an expanding investor base in the US, Europe and Asia."
