The management of B&FT, Africa’s leading provider of business information, has paid a courtesy visit to leadership of the Ghana Stock Exchange (GSE).
The visit, among others, was aimed at reinforcing the enduring partnership between B&FT and GSE, highlighting the continued collaboration and shared commitment to fostering strong a alliance.
During the meeting, discussions covered various pertinent topics including market dynamics, economic shifts, regulatory updates and potential areas of cooperation.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of B&FT, Dr. Godwin Acquaye – who led the delegation, expressed gratitude for the unwavering support and partnership from GSE; emphasising the importance of cultivating strong business relationships, especially in the face of challenging economic conditions.
“Relationships are very important in every endeavour, especially business. So, we are here to thank you; we appreciate so much the support we receive from you,” he said.
The CEO also took the opportunity to outline B&FT’s planned programmes and activities for 2024, with a keen focus on initiatives tailored to GSE.
These initiatives, he noted, are designed to not only fortify their partnership but also contribute in enhancing financial literacy across the nation – which mirrors the paper’s commitment to disseminating financial knowledge.
Managing Director-GSE, Abena Amoah, acknowledged the significance of the Stock Exchange’s partnership with B&FT.
According to her, the partnership is beneficial to Ghanaians, the economy and GSE. She emphasised that the existing cooperation is crucial in achieving financial literacy, education, empowerment and spreading accurate information that enables people to make informed decisions.
She therefore said GSE values the relationship it has with the paper, noting that such engagements play a vital role in maintaining open lines of communication between the media organisation and financial institutions such as the GSE.
The Deputy Manager of Trading and Surveillance at GSE, Kofi Owusu Ansah, took time to provide an overview of how the markets performed last year, especially the equity market.
Similarly, Eric Selase Edifor, Head-Information Technology, GSE, and Joyce Esi Boakye, Head-Listings and New Products, GSE, also provided insights into performance of the markets in their respective departments.
