NHEF Scholars Spotlight – Tamilore Asikhia
Name: Tamilore Asikhia
Attends: University of Lagos
Industry Track: Financial Services
Destination: Kuramo Capital Management
It has so far been a wonderful experience as I have had an avenue to grow in terms of knowledge in what I have a passion for, Investment banking and private equity. The various meetings and conference calls which I have been opportuned to be apart of have been enlightening as I have learnt quite a lot about investing in businesses and criteria for investment. I have learnt a lot about financial analysis and pitching investment deals and also a lot of investment terminologies, which I would inculcate in my vocabulary henceforth. I have gotten to understand that a wide range of opportunities are present in the Sun-Saharan African region, as there is a huge market base for peculiar ideas with a good value proposition.
Everyone has been welcoming and ready to assist me in whatever way possible and they’ve shown me that the greatest asset in the firm is its people, and I am grateful that the NHEF brought this magnanimous opportunity my way. I am still learning, and I am not yet an expert, but I know that this experience is a launchpad for me and my future career path. I unequivocally state that this experience, even though just two weeks in progress, has changed my value system and the mentality I have concerning my view of the Sub-Saharan African region.
I would be an NHEF ambassador till perpetuity and I would hold to the values the NHEF purports. Thank You NHEF, and God bless.
