The top 7 Ghanaian earners on the Ghana Stock Exchange



• Some individuals have been earning significantly on the Ghana Stock Exchange

• The earnings are based on figures from investment agencies accompanied with recent annual reports from capital market registrars

• The list includes Daniel Ofori, Frank Adu Jnr, and Joseph Siaw Agyepong

While stock trading may come with its risk owing to market volatility and sentiments, a number of Ghanaians still bet on the Ghana Stock Exchange (GSE) platform to diversify their income and investments.

According to Billionaires.Africa, a group of wealthy Ghanaian individuals prefer to focus on scaling up their investments through their privately-owned companies rather than trading on the local bourse of the GSE.

This means, although stocks, bonds, and securities of companies trading on the GSE may vary, only a handful of wealthy individuals in Ghana choose to keep some of their investments portfolios rather listed as equities on the stock market.

Based on figures from investment agencies accompanied with recent annual reports confirmations from capital market registrars obtained by Billionaires.Africa, some seven Ghanaians have been listed as the richest individuals on the Ghana Stock Exchange.

It is important to note that the value of the shares on prices as at the end of the August 2021 trading activity and valuations have been converted to U.S dollars based on the current exchange rate.
