BOI-ITC is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as Capital Market Operator to function as Trustee, Registrar and Fund/Portfolio Manager; and with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) as a finance company. Both registrations are current and valid. We also provide Secretarial and other ancillary services to companies.

BOI-ITC provides diversified services in the money and capital markets with a view to expanding and improving the quality of services in those sectors.


We arrange the syndication of short and long term loans with the option of clothing them with trustee services. As a subsidiary of the premier industrial bank in the country, our unique experience in project appraisals, consortium financing and securitisation of loans is of immense benefit to our clients.

Our Consultancy Unit is manned by highly experienced, multi-disciplinary professionals who will add value to your organization. We possess a rare mix of skills in the identification and delivery of business opportunities and solutions. We specifically offer a broad range of advice, support and solutions on project-related assignments to the SME and large enterprises sectors.

Our Consultancy Unit can help you acquire a loan which is designed especially for your company, whether your desire is to start up a new business or to expand your existing business through an increase in production capacity.

The first requirement needed before approaching any institution for financial assistance is a detailed feasibility report. The client must present a report that shows they understand the business they are in or intend to go into. Not all clients have the capacity or the time to carry out their own feasibility studies, and therefore hire outside institutions to do so. BOI-ITC, being a one-stop finance house, can produce a feasibility study for the business or transaction you intend to enter into. This can be done for any business irrespective of whether they are using our consultancy service or not.

Our financial advisory role in packaging your loan facility will include but not be limited to:

  • Reviewing the major elements of your company’s financial plans to determine the appropriate level of financing required;
  • Packaging the loan request for a group of commercial banks (both onshore and offshore), as well as conducting feasibility studies where applicable;
  • Monitoring the application process to ensure prompt response; and
  • Assisting in creating value through a post-loan approval advisory service until the final liquidation of the loan facility.


Most company owners often overlook or ignore the importance of proper corporate documentation as required by law. The danger inherent in this becomes glaring whenever the company needs to borrow money either to expand its business or to set up a production line when it becomes necessary to examine the corporate documents and legal status of the company.

We provide complete company secretarial services which include:

  • Arranging meetings and recording of proceedings at board of directors annual and extra-ordinary general meetings, or other statutory corporate meetings of companies.
  • Filing of statutory returns (at the Corporate Affairs Commission), annual reports and accounts, allotment of shares, alterations in the memorandum and articles of association, increase in share capital, share transfer, etc.
  • Preparation and negotiation of internal contracts for the supply of industrial machinery, equipment and raw materials; industrial and commercial licensing (patents, know-how, trademarks etc.); technical management and assistance, etc.
  • Processing of permits and approvals required to facilitate the establishment of industries, including joint venture projects involving foreign investors.


As a fully registered trust company, BOI-ITC is able to protect your assets long after you are not around to. In setting up a trust, you will not only protect yourself from tax liabilities, but have the peace of mind that your family will be protected in the unfortunate event of your death. In addition to the setting up of a trust, we provide all categories of trust services, including:

  • Trustee services relating to issuance of Bonds and Debentures.

Succession planning is an important part to planning your retirement. As a business owner with intentions of passing on the business to the next generation of your family, a succession plan is vital. If your retirement planning strategy includes using the proceeds of the sale to increase your investments, create an income stream, fund a new business venture or fulfill other goals, then you should develop a complementary business succession plan. Having a plan can actually improve the market value of a business and ease the transition of ownership for employers and customers.

Whether you plan to pass your business on to your family members or sell to increase your investment value, BOI-ITC can assist you to ensure maximum value.
