Is my money safe?
The Fund will work as any investment in stocks and shares of a company. It will be governed by the investment laws of Ghana. It means the value of the company could go up or down. But because the company will not be publicly traded on the stock exchange, we expect stable growth as the Fund continues to grow its portfolio of projects/assets.
