The Ghana Stock Exchange (GSE) is the principal stock exchange of the country. 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). The Exchange publishes two indices: the GSE Composite Index (GSE-CI; a market capitalization weighted index of all ordinary shares with the exception of those listed on other markets) and the GSE Financial Stocks Index (GSE-FSI; same as GSE-CI but consists of only stocks from the financial sector). Together with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the regulatory body for the securities market), the GSE have 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.

    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

    I am an investment analyst in Nairobi Kenya working on a project of analysing Ghana and the investment opportunities that it affords in terms of Equities, Fixed Income, Real Estate and Private Equity. Truth is there is not much to go on and the investors im advising need concrete proof of return. What is the average rate of return for investing in these asset classes there? Why hasn't the country's derivatives market been developed yet you clearly have some skilled people albeit few compared to a country like Kenya? Do you know of any websites that i may be able to use to access this information which i really need? I would very much appreciate the assistance from anyone who visits this website. Coming by good data is really hard and i would know being a data miner and all. Nevertheless i think your country is beautiful and amazing and one of the exemplary states of West Africa
