Rolake Akinkugbe is moving from her position as head of energy research at Ecobank to join the origination and client coverage team at FBN Capital. Her new title will be head of energy and natural resources. The move will see her relocate home to Nigeria from London in May.

Akinkugbe has spent more than three years in her position at Ecobank, and will now be putting the years spent gaining knowledge on and analysing Africa’s energy industry to practical use.
