Dear Subscriber,

You’ve heard it before ‘reading is to the mind, what exercise is to the body’. Research shows that engaging the mind in activities such as reading reduces the chance of early dementia and senility by up to 40%.

As 2017 winds down, it’s not too early to draft your 2018 resolutions, whilst you review this year’s goals and achievements. The lifestyle section of the Unity Bank Digest is sure to provide the needed motivation you need to create next year’s to-do list.

Meanwhile, sunny skies are dawning upon the business environment, as the country scores significant gains in its PMI and Ease of Doing Business Rankings. The economy seems to be in a better place, as oil prices flirt with a new high ($60pb).

This edition of the Unity Bank Digest contains a cocktail of social and business updates. It also features pieces on recent developments in Nigeria’s hospitality and retail space, along with analysis of the 2018 budget and inflation trajectory.

Enjoy your read!
