Oxford Business Group (OBG), the global publishing, research and consultancy firm, has brought an added dimension to its first publication on Ghanas economy by teaming up with IC Securities (Ghana) Limited.
The investment banking, asset management and securities brokerage company will produce key analysis in the Capital Markets Chapter of The Report: Ghana 2011, the Groups forthcoming business guide on the African States economic activity and investment opportunities.
IC Securities provides services in investment banking, asset management and securities brokerage to sovereign, institutional, corporate and retail clients looking to access local and global capital markets and asset classes across Africa. The company is a Licensed Dealing Member of the Ghana Stock Exchange and also operates as an investment advisor and research information provider.
OBGs Country Director, Elise Postigo, welcomed IC Securities on board for the Groups forthcoming project, adding that the companys leading product knowledge and expertise on the markets would give The Report: Ghana 2011 an edge.
Political stability and economic diversification have provided solid foundations for Ghanas development and this has been buoyed by the countrys major oil discovery, she said. IC Securities has its finger on the pulse of the markets both in Ghana and across the region, with firsthand experience in financial structuring and a network of strategic and commercial alliances. I am delighted that we will be working closely with its team on our highly-anticipated first report which marks a milestone for both the Group and Ghana.
The CEO of IC Securities David Awuah-Darko said he expected OBGs launch report to be instrumental in providing international investors with key business intelligence on how Ghanas oil reserves were redefining its economic outlook.
These are exciting times for Ghana; its markets reflect the heightened economic activity taking place here as we witnessed with Tullow Oils move to list on the Ghana Stock Exchange, he said. The addition of the oil and gas exploration and production group marks the first listing of an international, upstream oil player and is expected to be followed by further activity.
Awuah-Darko voiced his confidence that The Report: Ghana 2011 would prove to be a valuable tool for business leaders as they make their investment decisions. Oxford Business Group has carved out a reputation as a market leader on emerging economies, he said. I am delighted to be collaborating with its team on this inaugural report which is set to fill a void by providing comprehensive data on Ghanas changing economic landscape.
The Report: Ghana 2011 will be a vital guide to the many facets of the country, including its macroeconomics, infrastructure, banking and other sectoral developments. The report will include a detailed, sector-by-sector guide for foreign investors together with a wide range of interviews with the most prominent political, economic and business leaders, including thePresident of Ghana John Evans Atta Mills.
Other leading personalities giving their views on Ghanas economic development include the Prime Minister of the Netherlands Mark Rutte, the President of the ECOWAS Commission James Victor Gbeho, and the Secretary General of the World Tourism Organization Taleb Rifai. The Report: Ghana 2011 will also include a detailed, sector-by-sector guide for foreign investors and a wide-ranging analysis of the countrys telecoms sector. It will be available in print form or online.
