In line with SEC aim to regulate and promote the growth and development of an efficient, fair, and transparent security market in which investors and the integrity of the market are protected, SEC planned an investor education program dubbed “TIME WITH THE SEC” which aimed at educating investors in Tamale and its environs.
Hon. Shaibu encouraged SEC to work their fingers to the bone so knowledge about investment and the capital market will be deeply rooted into the minds of Ghanaians.
He said that time with the SEC here is refreshing because, the Northern part of Ghana is endowed with various opportunities that need to be harnessed and leveraged to unearth massive benefits to the country.
He added that, under the leadership of the President, His Excellency, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the Northern Region has witnessed unprecedented development in the region making it more attractive to investors. “Infrastructure projects such as roads, hospitals, factories, electricity access, etc., have been expanded in the region. These and many others create a conducive environment for private sector to thrive.”
He encouraged everyone to keenly participate in the program to make it highly interactive and successful.
The Director General of SEC, Rev. Daniel Ogbarmey Tetteh in his address said “TIME WITH THE SEC” is the flagship investor education program of the SEC, designed to provide investors and other key stakeholders an opportunity to engage directly with the people of the Northern Region and beyond.
The engagement includes education on critical topics to deliver a better understanding of the Ghanian Capital Market; discuss what they do as the SEC and what they can do for the people; give them critical updates in the Ghanaian Capital Market among others.
He revealed that as the Regulator of Security Industry, their commitment is to use the tools available in their toolkit to pursue the execution of their mandate.
He expects that such engagements would give investors more insight into their operations in order to shape what they expect from the Regulator of the securities industry as well as the market operators they license.
