About Us

VFD Group is a financial services focused proprietary investment company that creates value by working within Nigeria’s informal financial sector to create innovative products and solutions that are accessible to the everyday Nigerian citizen and entrepreneur.
VFD Group was founded by skilled professionals with diverse experience, qualifications and backgrounds. As a team, we identified the gap between both individuals and small businesses and their banking experiences and set out to bridge the divide.
We discovered that despite the size of the formal financial sector, the informal sector is greater still, and that there are immense opportunities for value creation within this informal sector. Considering that, we developed a business model that allows us to operate in every area of the financial industry through our subsidiaries, providing Financial Advisory, Asset Management, Currency, Real Estate, Debt Services and Private Funds Management Services, taking deposits and providing loans at very competitive rates.
In all our endeavours, we are fully cognizant of the risks that come with pioneering innovation and working within the informal sector. The diverse backgrounds and combined expertise of our Management and Board has enabled us to develop a versatile team of in-house risk managers, thoroughly enabling us to mitigate these risks.
Founded on the values of integrity and good governance, and built on the strength of innovation and network, the goal of VFD Group is to establish a firm foothold in various ecosystems on the continent through our subsidiary companies. Through these companies, we aim to creatively and consistently build our capacity to provide financial solutions that cater to every need an individual or small business might have, leading us to becoming the foremost financial services brand in Nigeria and on the continent.
VFD Group was incorporated with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) on 7th July 2009 and commenced business operations effectively on the 1st of January 2011.
