Effective Monday, October 19, Ghana’s foremost investment management and advisory firm, STANLIB Ghana, is Stanbic Investment Management Services (SIMS).

The change in the trading name is a reflection of the current ownership structure of the company. 

Speaking on the change, Managing Director of SIMS, Alex Asiedu, said it is important to always respond to the changing demands and needs of time if a business wants to survive in a fast-paced world.

“Change is an inevitable part of our existence as a business and when it happens, it is important to quickly respond to the demands and adapt. This is even more important for businesses that seek to grow and expand to meet the changing demands of customers,” Alex Asiedu said.

The SIMS MD assured all unit holders and the public that the change will not affect the firm’s services nor its obligations to them.

“We would like to assure our clients that their account names, structure and funds remain intact regardless of the change of name and our staff remain at post to continue offering our clients the stellar services that we are well known for.

“Our contact details such as telephone numbers remain unchanged as well as our operating office, fourth floor, Stanbic Heights at Airport City”.

SIMS is licensed with the Ghana Securities and Exchange Commission and is registered with the National Pensions Regulatory Authority.

It is a multi-specialist asset manager that connects retail and institutional clients with multiple investment opportunities across asset classes and markets.
