Nexia Agbo Abel & Co with its proven local expertise also has an enviable
global reach as it is a member of Nexia International; a worldwide network of independent auditors, business advisers and consultants with offices in over 115 countries.

Nexia Agbo Abel & Co. was established in November 2004 as Agbo Abel & Co.
The founding team was made up of seasoned professionals who had spent
close to two decades with KPMG and Deloitte in various responsible positions.
The firm’s foundation was rooted in the provision of solutions that meets
international standards, adds value to clients business, and is reasonably
priced. In pursuit of this, the firm therefore sought membership of Nexia
International and was subsequently admitted into the network in August 2006
as a Category B member. This was after a successful international quality
review of the firm’s procedures and practice and barely two years after it
commenced business. The firm’s membership was subsequently upgraded to
Category A in June 2013 following another mandatory international firm-wide
quality review. Thereafter the firm changed its name to Nexia Agbo Abel &
Co.

Nexia Agbo Abel & Co. is a member firm of Nexia International.

Nexia International is a leading, global network of independent accounting
and consulting firms. It was founded in 1971 by two firms – Oppenheim Appel
Dixon & Associates, USA and Spicer & Pegler, UK. These two founding
member firms serviced over half the firms in the financial sector in the major
Centres of London and New York. Apart from the global firms, no other
network has this pedigree.
Since 1971, one of Nexia’s greatest strengths has been the willingness of its
independent firms to share their partners’ expertise and knowledge with other
members of the network. On an annual basis, Nexia members have the
chance to exchange ideas at a general meeting, regional meetings as well as
conferences. In particular, Nexia attaches great importance to the education
of its younger members – sponsoring programmes for tomorrow’s leaders and
seminars for managers.

Every client expects high standards from a professional firm. Nexia endorses
the quality of its firms by conducting regular Quality Control Reviews. All its
member firms must belong to their local professional body.

Whenever you do business in a foreign country, local advice and expertise are
vital. As a client of a Nexia International member firm, you will receive the
guidance you need, the attention you deserve at a price you can afford.

Following the financial scandals of recent years, it is increasingly important
that businesses can be satisfied that their consultants are performing their
services to the highest quality standards. Nexia International has put in place
procedures and standards which are required to be met by all members and
as a condition of continuing membership.
