Blackwell Global launched their first educational seminar in Lagos, Nigeria, marking their foray into the African continent and staying true to their expansion plans for 2014. An award-winning (“Most Innovative STP Broker Asia 2013” & “Best Customer Service Provider Australasia 2013” by Global Banking & Finance Review and World Finance respectively) and leading online foreign exchange (“forex”) service provider, Blackwell Global swiftly and decisively marked the start of the new year by being the first forex brokerage to offer Straight-Through Processing (STP) and No Dealing Desk (NDD)  execution to Lagos.

David Onaolapo, newly appointed Country Manager and a citizen of Lagos, opened the seminar with much anticipation from the crowd. “We are proud to be starting a new era of forex trading in Lagos. We’re establishing a solid presence here to bring you a world-class brokerage, providing world-class services.”
