The Securities and Exchange Commission, Ghana (SEC Ghana) has become the second capital market regulator to formulise its participation in Financial Sector Deepening Africa’s (FSD Africa) flagship Africa Regulator Support Programme, a continent-wide initiative designed to strengthen the continent’s capital market regulators to reach international standards. The cooperation agreement was signed at the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences during the 3rd Market Conference on the 21st November.
