The Economist forecasts Nigeria to have 400million people by 2050, meaning it will become the world’s third most populous country. Therefore, Nigeria will continue to remain relevant in global business despite its challenges.”

The Firm has stated that the current development aligns closely with the Firm’s vision of achieving accelerated growth and being a leading professional services firm in the sub-region.
With the recent announcement by RSM, Stransact is already positioning itself to become the fifth largest accounting firm in Nigeria due to its vast local regulatory knowledge and clients base that cut across all sectors of the economy.
RSM is the sixth largest network of independent audit, tax and consulting firms worldwide, encompassing over 120 countries, 820 offices and more than 48,000 people internationally. Stransact will provide local expertise and experience to international clients of RSM which have a footprint in Nigeria.
Reacting to the announcement, Mr. Eben Joels, the Managing Partner of the Firm, stated, “As a leading global network, RSM advisers help middle market enterprises mitigate risk and achieve accelerated growth both locally and globally. The middle market is the engine room of Nigeria’s economy and Stransact is well positioned to serve emerging entrepreneurs and local companies with global aspirations to further grow their businesses.”
Clive Betty, RSM Regional Leader for Africa says, “A confident, resurgent Nigeria is critical to RSM’s plans in the region and for Africa as a whole. I look forward to working with the team in Stransact to support our local and international clients in Nigeria.”
