Ready to Open an account? Start here but first, what you need to know
Step 1: Opening an account with any registered and licensed Stock brokering company in Nigeria is safe. More importantly, even if the stock brokering company you are opening an account were to close shop, there is no fear, because your account is actually at CSCS.
CSCS means Central Securities and Clearing System, look at it like having a BVN ‘account’ at CBN, so it doesn’t matter which bank helped you facilitate getting this BVN ‘account’; because your stocks are at the CBN*, which in this case is, CSCS.
Step 2: You need certain items to open an INDIVIDUAL account and they include:
-A valid government-approved means of identification. This could be your valid Driver’s license, your Bio page of your International Passport, your National Identity Card.
-You will need a utility bill for your current place of residence. Usually, an electricity or water bill showing your address is ideal. You could also use a Land Use Charge bill.
-You will need a passport photograph as well.
-Have your BVN number ready.
-Finally an electronic signature or physical sign-off
