Management Jobs in Ghana

The primary Mission of the Ghana Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is to protect investors and maintain the integrity of the securities market. As more and more first-time investors begin to look upon the securities market as an alternative investment opportunity and as a means of securing their futures, paying for homes, and educating children, these goals are more compelling than ever.

The world of investing is fascinating, complex, and can be very fruitful. However, it must be borne in mind that shares, bonds and other securities can lose value. There are no guarantees. That is why investors have to take proactive steps to protect the money they put into the securities markets by monitoring their investments and asking questions.
