Halo Financial Services: An Introduction

This is an official introduction to Halo financial services, what we have to offer, and what you stand to gain.

Halo Financial Services offers banking, investment, and other financial services as a service to formal and informal communities. This enables communities to offer their members the products and tools necessary to plan, save, and invest to meet their financial goals.

Halo defines a community as any group of people with defined membership and identifiable leadership. This includes but is not restricted to; professional or trade associations, cooperatives, social clubs, and unions.

Our approach

1. Democratizing access:

We’ll be eliminating financial jargon and using simple language, so no one feels left out of financial conversations. We also meet people where they are, so you can engage with us however you feel most comfortable. If you’re techy, there’s an app; if you like face-to-face, we have a nationwide agent network.

2. Digital distribution:

We are a fully digital business; even our physical touchpoints are digitally enabled. We are using technology to make wealth creation easier, more accessible, more intelligent, more innovative, and more enjoyable. 

3. Community collaboration:

We have platforms and tools to help communities – regardless of size and type, collaborate more effectively and build wealth together.

4. Building trust through networks:

We leverage relationships within existing networks and drive trust through ratings and other social-proofing tools.

What makes Halo different from the competition?

We refer to this as the Halo Effect; we are one of the few companies in Nigeria with both an asset management and a microfinance bank license.

Halo Financial Services has two fully licensed companies, Halo Asset Management Ltd and Halo Microfinance Bank (formerly Enrich Microfinance Bank). With them, we can offer a full spectrum of financial services from basic banking to sophisticated investments.

In addition, our in-house wealth experts provide advisory support for our high-end customers. They also contribute to financial literacy content for our other customers.
