Event Overview

Date: 25 November 2020

Event overview

Ghana’s money markets have been in rapid development across the past few years, also including becoming the 4th country in Sub Saharan Africa to adopt an Insolvency Act. Many of these achievements have been booked relative to the repo market and the introduction of GMRA as the market standard. Ghana’s market regulation model – the Ghana Fixed Income Market (GFIM) Committee – is an inter-institutional, formal collaboration that has helped press through necessary reforms. This live event was dedicated to the market’s regulators and repo market practitioners. Speakers shared the key points in their rapid development and the up-coming challenges and opportunities.
