The Security and Exchange Commission(SEC)has held what it christened “Capital Market Financial Education Forum (CMFEF)” for stakeholders in the Ghanaian capital market as part of its public education exercise.
The program targeted journalists in Ghana with the aim of educating the media on the workings of the capital market in Ghana.
The program was designed to equip journalists and the media with the requisite knowledge for informed and effective reporting on the capital market.
It was on the theme: “Understanding the Mandate and Regulatory Toolkit of SEC.”
Speaking at the event, Rev. Daniel Ogbarmey Tetteh, the Director-General of SEC highlighted the importance of the media as a critical partner in public education.
He underscored the need for the investing public to understand how capital market products work in order to make informed investment decisions.
Rev. Ogbarmey decried the rise of Ponzi schemes in Ghana and called on the media to throw their weight behind efforts to intensify public education with the ultimate goal of achieving investor protection.
He challenged journalists to deepen their appreciation of the capital market so as to be better placed to give more accurate reportage and media mileage since information is the pivot of the securities industry.
The Director-General of SEC also said the forum represented the beginning of many public education programs to transpire over the year.
The capital market financial education forum series according to Rev. Ogbarmey would be tailored at key stakeholders including the investing public, market operator and other critical partners.
