PHCCIMA President, Chief Nabil Saleh has told a delegation of the Asset Resource Management Holding Company (ARM) Investment Managers that that PHCCIMA is open to innovations that will add value to its members. The President made this assertion when the delegation visited the chamber with the objective to get PHCCIMA members key into their value proposition and attract mutually beneficial resource. Having heard the reason for their visit, he commended ARM's various initiatives stressing the need to bring those values and companies involved in Rivers state. He harped also on job creation, especially for the youth, and to stimulate the state economy. He assured the team that PHCCIMA will help them connect to members and the business community in the state in the areas of concern to add value and achieve their aim. In his remark, the ARM lead, Mr. Ayodele Idowu, said ARM was established in 1994 as an asset management firm, to offer wealth creation opportunities through a unique blend of traditional asset management and alternative investment services. According to him, the company enables businesses to thrive, and help clients to maximize their returns and realize their most important goals. “We have built a firm uniquely equipped to achieve these objectives and our reputation for quality research, investment expertise, and value-added services has endeared us to clients both locally and internationally; throughout our history, we have strategically positioned ourselves to take advantage of growth opportunities within Africa and major international markets on behalf of our clients”, he said, adding that the company's disciplined and consistent approach to investment management has helped them maintain long-term relationships with clients said it has been a signature that has continued to attract and retain fruitful synergies. “We are at the chamber because we see both value and a need gap we can fill. As a company, we have chosen niche areas that will contribute to stimulating members, the business community and the Rivers economy. However, we are not known for these niche areas in this clime, hence we are here to join the chamber to help us achieve our set objectives in the area of Agriculture where we can come in to tutor those in that line of business on the best agricultural practices for bountiful harvest, acquire assets and make use of the locals to achieve needed resource and output in the area of Investments, and offer financial advisory, pensions, trusts, insurance, real estate, private equity, and agriculture among others, and we are confident, this is the right place. 1st Deputy President, Chief Mike Elechi had described ARM is a reputable firm that has done great. However he said venturing into these new niches in a new city can be challenging, that is why the visit to PHCCIMA is not just apt but will help to provide those linkages and project ARM and their services to the public, He urged them to further showcase themselves by participating in the upcoming 2019 international trade fair as a veritable platform to keep the public abreast with their services and products. Manager Grofin Port Harcourt/Vice Chairman of Financial Houses, Insurance and Banking Trade Group, Mr Friday Essienekak noted that since ARM provides global asset management services across a wide range of traditional and alternative investment options, they should use their products and services to impact real SME’s. He commended the company for engaging and impacting locals through their various asset management and agricultural ventures, stating that it was a noble idea to have chosen to visit thePHCCIMA, as this will impact greatly on their effort to achieve their goals as he did with Grofin in 2014. Others who spoke in the meeting include the 2nd Deputy President of PHCCIMA, Dr Chinyere Nwoga, Treasurer, Engr Tony Nwogbo and Director-General of PHCCIMA, Erasmus Chukunda
