In a bid to promote financial literacy among the youth, the Ghana Stock Exchange has collaborated with the Young Investors Network with support from Joy Business to organise this year’s Capital Market Quiz for students in the second cycle institutions in the Greater Accra Region.

The capital market quiz competition is an annual quiz competition that brings together high school students in Greater Accra.

The objective is to motivate the students to increase their knowledge in capital market, financial planning and investments.

Speaking to Joy Business at the balloting of the various participating schools, Head of Marketing and PR at the Ghana Stock Exchange, Jerry Boachie-Danquah said the move is to promote financial literacy among the youth in Ghana.

“This quiz our expectation is that it will engender a lot of competition among the young people and it will create a lot of excitement and bring the best out of them. So once people get to know about this quiz, we will have a lot more schools participating”.
