The Ghana Stock Exchange was on September 28, 2022, admitted to full membership of the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE) at its 61st Annual General Assembly held in Malta.

GSE becomes the 11th African Stock Exchange to become a full member of the WFE.

The WFE is a non-profit organisation, which has the objective to contribute to the development, support, and promotion of organised and regulated securities and derivatives markets, to meet the needs of the world’s capital markets in the best interests of their users.

As a full member of the Federation, the GSE will benefit from the WFE’s work done by its various Working Committees as well as from the interaction with other members to further develop the stock market in Ghana to increase its relevance and contribution to the Ghanaian financial sector eco-system and the economy at large.

Membership in the association will also boost investor confidence in the Ghanaian market as we support the Government to make Ghana a gateway to Africa and a global Financial Hub.

In his remarks, the Managing Director of the Ghana Stock Exchange, Ekow Afedzie said: “This is another milestone chalked by the Exchange and becoming a full member of the WFE is a testament to our commitment to adhering to the highest international standards and best practices to move this Exchange from a frontier to an emerging market status.”

GSE looks forward to taking advantage of every opportunity available to members to develop the market
