The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has begun drafting new guidelines on third party and related transactions that will prevent misapplication and misappropriation of investments funds by fund managers. 

The third party and related transactions was the major cause of collapse of fund management firms, forcing the clean-up of the securities industry.

Disclosing this at the Tesah Capital Webinar on the Topic:  Investing After the Financial Sector clean-up, Deputy Director of SEC, Paul Ababio, said “what we learnt from the sector clean-up was that there was corporate governance weakness. Due to that we have introduced a conduct of business guidelines in which we require market operators to issue annual reports.”

“We also found that there were related transactions that were not done transparently, so we’re working on introducing investment guidelines for fund managers”, he pointed.

Furthermore, he said “we’ve also digitized the submission of reports, and this allows for real time inspections by the regulator and for us to address confrontational issues as and when we identify them.

Speaking at the same forum, Senior Lecturer at the University of Ghana Business School, Dr. Elikplimi Komla Agloyor cautioned Ghanaian investors to be mindful of their appetite for high returns since their investments can go waste.

“Don’t chase abnormal returns. What returns will we classify abnormal, for example 10% a month. I think it’s abnormal but currently if you buy Treasury bill instruments, they’re going between 12 and 13%…that’s understandable, that’s not like 120% a year.”

“Or if you’re doing the equity market, the average return you could get is probably 20% a year. These are returns that also compensating you for inflation. Beyond that I think you should be careful,” he added.

A board member of Tesah Capital, Dr. Justice Yankson assured investors that his outfit will exhibit compliance and prudence in its financial transactions.

“We’re going to continue to ensure that at all times, we’re compliant and we are up to date with everything that the regulator requires of us.”

“We are running a very open entrance system where each client can at any given time log on and access their account details, reach out to us either virtually or in person for any discussion relating to investment, management of finances and the way forward,” he assured.
