The Managing Director, Sigma Pensions, Mr. Dave Uduanu has urged workers to build a secure financial future by entrusting the management of their pension funds to organisations that stand for safety, consistent return on investment and safe investment portfolio.
According to a statement obtained on Sunday, Uduanu said this during the company’s human resources conference in Lagos.
While noting that Sigma Pension had proved to be one of such organisations, he urged contributors to embrace the company’s services.
He advised self-employed Nigerians to set up a sound pension scheme in order to build strong financial plan for their retirement.
Uduanu urged contributors to advance to the level of adding voluntary savings to their Retirement Savings Account, noting that contributors could determine to earn benefits higher than their regular salaries through the additional voluntary savings.
He said, “Sigma Pensions, which currently has over 600,000 contributors and over N300bn, and listed on the London Stock Exchange’s ‘Companies to Inspire Africa’ report, is determined to help Nigerian workers build a better financial future.
“Sigma Pensions, which is the fifth largest pension fund administrator in Nigeria with foreign partnership, has no rivalry when it comes to securing the future of workers who entrust their pension to us. In its choice of investment of contributors’ funds, Sigma does not take unnecessary risk or joke with its objectives of growing contributors’ money.”
According to him, the company, which has more contributors in Abuja and the northern part of the country, commenced operations in the Federal Capital Territory, and has decided to explore opportunities in other regions, especially in Lagos.
He said the event was the beginning of its engagement with the private sector in Lagos because one of its core strategies was to grow its private sector client base to a significantly higher number.
“We believe that the best thing to do is to go to the HR managers in our country to tell them about the re-invigorated brand of Sigma Pensions, engage them and understand their concerns, and also find ways to serve them better,” Uduanu added.
