Head of Client Experience at Stanbic Investment Management, Miriam Maku Amissah has asked Ghanaians to take up investment for nation-building.

Miriam Aku Amissah advised Ghanaians to seek professional assistance for their investment.

She stated, “When we talk about responsible investing it simply means making sure that you’re putting your money into areas that affect the community as well. We are looking at sustainable investment and how your investment affects your surroundings. With private equity, for instance, you are putting money into businesses in the community which could affect you and the other people in that community if you invest.”

“One of the Responsible Investment initiatives we have taken as Stanbic Investment Management Services is to ensure that we are putting some money in some venture capital funds which have started retirement support plans and investing in start-up businesses or are improving businesses that are running and helping them to grow. These initiatives have all been put in place to ensure that as a business we also look beyond creating profit and rather contribute as well to ensuring the development and growth of our community,” she added.

Maku Amissah further stated “Admittedly we are going through very challenging financial times. Although we are in trying times, there are also a lot of opportunities. Do not shy away from investing but rather consult a financial advisor to guide you make the right choice. It all starts with what your objective is and what your risk appetite is. Have a conversation with a financial advisor and we will look at your needs and match them to opportunities available on the market.”

“At Stanbic, we have financial advisors who are dedicated to helping you. Stanbic Investment Management Services is located on the fourth floor of Stanbic Heights, so feel free to walk in and meet any of our qualified investment advisors. You can also walk into any of our branches across the country and get all the information you need.”
