Securities investors in the 21st century seem to change trend of investment for fear of the effects of the global financial crises and executive fraud scandals which accounts for the quick fall in the value of shares and other investment securities in the Nigerian Capital market. Informed investors are of the view that the primary aim of their investment is to help create more wealth and advance their grip on corporate control yet these have not been realistic because of these crises hence the diversion from securities investment business to property ownerships. These have accosted most investors to resort to alternative investments, most especially the properties such as land and buildings.
