It’s Man Crush Monday again! Today our spotlight is on Segun Akintemi, the CEO of Page Financials, a fintech business that offers speedy internet loans without collateral.
With approximately 30 years of experience in the banking and financial services sector, including 15 years in senior management and executive positions, Segun is currently the MD/CEO of Page International Financial Services Limited.
He graduated from the Lagos Business School with a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology and a Master of Business Administration. He has taken several senior management courses and is a graduate of the Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania and the INSEAD Business School in France.
He has demonstrated outstanding leadership and business process/transformation abilities in previous positions where he was in charge of Skye Bank plc’s shared services for its more than 250 locations across Nigeria. At various points, he was also in charge of expanding the bank’s operations throughout West Africa and establishing the bank as one of the nation’s most cutting-edge financial institutions.
He served as a Director on the board of Law Union & Rock and is currently a member of the boards of both DKB Markets, the top FX trading firm, and HIS, the largest tower company in Nigeria. He also served as the team leader when Renmoney Microfinance Bank, one of the nation’s top providers of consumer lending, was created.
He said when he was asked to talk about his business and himself; I regard life, my family, and generating value for the good of many to be my passions. Since starting Page six years ago and throughout my almost 31-year banking career, this desire has motivated several of my ancestors. Despite having a background in technology, I am service-oriented and believe that providing outstanding customer service, exemplary leadership, and maximizing returns to stakeholders are crucial components of business growth and sustainability. These have developed into my business pillars. Page Financials offers possibilities and empowerment to our clients, and we intend to do the same for other Nigerians. We are aware that sometimes having access to capital is what separates a brilliant idea from becoming a reality.
We are here for well-meaning Nigerians who can accomplish their goals and settle their commitments over a practical length of time, whether it is acquiring a post-graduate degree, moving residences, or growing a business. Offering our products through the most cutting-edge, practical, and quick platforms and procedures is our main priority at Page Financials. Customers can quickly apply using our website or mobile app, send an email, call our contact center, or even stop by the office to obtain access to finance in less than three hours. We are aware that people occasionally make financial decisions that necessitate an immediate need for cash, and we work to make sure they have access to it when they do. We provide two types of loans: Loans for commercial purposes and personal loans to wage earners
We offer loans of between N200,000 to N5 million to salary earners in Lagos and Ibadan. Subject to approval, disbursement time is in less than 3 hours. We also have an investment plan where investors can get up to 20 percent return on investment (ROI), depending on the amount they invest with us and the tenor. Our customers also use our mobile app to pay bills and transfer money to any bank in Nigeria at a zero-naira service charge. This means you get to save transaction charges any time you transfer money or pay bills with our app. We are one of the first fintech companies to embrace the ₦0 on transaction charges while performing financial operations.
