Ghana: GCX and Ghana Investment and Securities Institute (GISI) sign MoU

The Ghana Commodity Exchange (GCX) and the Ghana Investment and Securities Institute Limited (GISI) have revealed the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) focused on education and professional development in the field of commodities trading.

The Ghana Commodity Exchange Certification Programme collaboration is to prepare participants toward fostering expertise and proficiency within the commodities market.

The goals of this certificate program include offering participants a thorough understanding of structured trading systems and their associated ecosystems, enhancing the capabilities of current market participants, and delivering Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities for commodity traders.

“This collaboration is committed to raising the standards in Ghana’s commodities trading sector. The programme has been thoughtfully structured to equip participants with the practical tools needed to successfully navigate the dynamics of an ever-changing market,” a GCX statement read.

This initiative is anticipated to stimulate the growth and advancement of the entire domestic commodities market.

The Ghana Commodity Exchange Certification Programme in Commodity Trading (CPCT) will focus on equipping participants with in-depth understanding of commodity trading. This certificate will serve as an essential prerequisite for securing a trading licence with the Ghana Commodity Exchange.

“The GCX Certification Programme in Commodity Trading (CPCT) showcases our dedication to fostering expertise and proficiency. We eagerly anticipate making an enduring impact on the growth and development of Ghana’s commodities market and beyond. The strategic partnership between the Ghana Commodity Exchange (GCX) and Ghana Investment and Securities Institute Limited (GISI) marks a significant milestone in our commitment to advancing education and professional development in commodities trading,” said Tucci Ivowi, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Ghana Commodity Exchange.

At the signing, Alexander Williams, CEO-GISI, shared these words: “The quality of our training manuals at GISI has been recognised as excellent and of international standard. Through our collaboration with the Chartered Institute of Securities & Investment (CISI), our Institute is gradually appearing on the international scene because of its portability. You should therefore expect a high standard from the GISI, and we expect nothing less from the GCX. Persons holding our joint certificate will do so with pride”.

The MoU was signed by Mrs. Ivowi on behalf of the GCX and by Mr. Williams for GISI.
