The Ghana Stock Exchange (GSE) is the principal stock exchange of the country located in the capital Accra. Through its automated trading system, the GSE opens for continuous trading every working day from 10:00 to 15:00 GMT. Settlement of trades, handled by Bank of Ghana's Central Securities Depositary, is done on a T+3 basis (business days). Backed by the SEC, the regulatory body for the securities market in the country, the GSE has various investor protection provisions such as rules against insider trading as well as a fidelity fund to compensate investors for losses incurred as a result of malpractice by a licensed dealing member of the bourse.

In January 2011, the GSE began publishing two indices, namely, the GSE Composite Index (GSE-CI) and the GSE Financial Stocks Index (GSE-FSI). The GSE-CI is a market capitalization weighted index comprising all listed ordinary shares with the exception of those of listed companies that have shares listed on other markets. Calculation of the index is based on the volume-weighted average closing price of the constituent stocks. The GSE-FSI is exactly like the GSE-CI but has as its constituents stocks from the financials sector, including those in the banking and insurance industries. The GSE-CI is regarded as the benchmark index of the Ghana stock market.

The GAX, operated as a parallel market since 2015, is aimed at small and medium-sized enterprises with strong growth potential. The table below presents equities from both categories. Currently, the types of stocks listed on the GSE are common stocks (ordinary shares), preferred stocks (preference shares), and exchange traded funds.

      hello Leticia,

      with as little as 50 Ghana cedis, you can set up an account with a mutual fund. these funds allow investment professionals to allocate your capital in the best opportunities the market has to offer.

      in the stock market, there are two ways to make money: dividends and stock appreciation.

      In Ghana, dividends are paid once a year so there is nothing like a daily interest payment. Secondly, if the price of your shares moves from 1 cedi to 1.20 cedis that will be a 20% appreciation.

      however, the stock market should not be viewed as an avenue to make quick money, but rather a long-term wealth builder. you may go to the nearest Databank or Ecobank branch to open an investment account with them.

      You need the fundamentals. And control your emotions. Psychology is more important on the stock market than mathematics.

      Know the business you want to invest in. Confirm that they have a solid organization and product and they are doing well in their space. Then also look through their numbers and track record in terms of profitability, dividends and P/E. Buy only after doing your due diligence. If you buy well, you will not be perturbed by temporary fluctuations in the market

    How do I start trading on the Ghana stocks market

      To start trading on the Ghana Stock Exchange, a prospective investor must contact a licensed stockbroker of their choice. A stockbroker is a professional who helps investors to either buy or sell shares on the stock exchange, as well as offer advice to investors about which securities to trade in. An Authorised Dealing Officer is a broker who has been licensed by the Ghana Stock Exchange to be a trader in securities on the exchange. You can see the full list of licensed dealing members of the Ghana Stock Exchange here:

      Now that you've picked your broker, you then proceed to open a securities account with the brokerage firm by completing an account opening form with your personal particulars, a passport picture, identification (voter card, driving licence, passport, national ID) and contact address. The process of opening a CSD account is simple and free of charge but requires a minimum balance just as a bank account does.

      With your securities account confirmed, you can start trading in the shares of the listed companies either by direct placement of order at the broker's premises, phone call, or via the broker's internet portal. The amount of money you need to invest on the Ghana Stock Exchange depends on the prices of shares you select. Shares are usually traded in batches or round lots of 100. Where the price of a particular stock is high, an investor can contact a broker to buy fewer than 100 shares, commonly referred to as odd lots.

      For more information contact the Ghana Stock Exchange at the Cedi House, Liberia Avenue, Accra, or via phone +233-302-669-908/914/935, or its website

    Any of the stock brokers on the GSX list of brokers will help you get started with Stock investments. Too what degree this help will be depends on the broker you choose.

    There is risk of financial loss in any investment, even the most successful companies can fall to fraud or just bad business judgement . Never invest your life savings in a single company try to make your investments varied and diverse. Invest only the monies you are prepared to lose. Always lean to the side of caution and "Do your home work " in the company of your choice. Careful but safe investing..allan s.

    Please how do I get the average share price of a company for a particular year

      The same way you get the average for any set of data. Sum up all the elements in the set then divide by the number of elements there are. In your case the elements are the share price for each day, which you can obtain from the graphs.

      The Ghana Stock Exchange ( is a marketplace where investors and speculators buy and sell shares in financial instruments. The GSE is regulated by the Securities & Exchange Commission Ghana ( to ensure proper conduct by all participants. By buying shares in one of the listed companies on the exchange, you become a part-owner of that particular company. This entitles you to a share of the company's profits paid out to its investors so called dividends.

      Buying shares in companies however is not risk-free. If the company goes bust, so does your money. So you have to make sure you know a little bit about the company before buying their shares. When you're ready to buy shares, you must open an account with the Central Securities Depository (GH) Ltd ( by visiting the premises of any licensed stockbroker with 2 passport pictures and a valid government ID card or passport. Your CSD account is what will allow you to buy and sell shares on the stock market in Ghana.

      Finally, after you have purchased your shares, you can visit a website like this one to monitor its performance on the stock exchange. If the share price rises, you can sell for profit which beginning next year will be permanently tax-free as read out in the 2021 National Budget in parliament earlier this month. That is what the Ghana Stock Exchange is all about.

    Hello Michael, I'm a new member on this page and I want to invest on the Ghana Stock Exchange market, can you kindly assists me on how to enter the security market and how to buy shares and actually how the stock market operates?

      Investing on any stock market requires understanding of the regulations of that particular Stock Market. There is no guarantee of making it big on the market.

      One thing you must NOT do is to hand over your money to a broker and give a free hand on how your account is managed. Brokers make money by trading i.e. buying and selling on behalf of the client YOU must give the ok to every transaction.

      You should research every company yourself. Financial reports, shareholdings press releases, etc. Unfortunately. there regulation dealing with insider trading, as far as I am aware, on the GSE!

      Over the years I have been quite enthusiastic over the GSE and have indeed done extremely well.

      Sometimes your broker my contact you about a private placement. Again it is up to the potential Investor to read the prospectus and if possible go to the meeting and ask questions an necessary. An investor can do quite well in such situations
