Market News & Information

January 2014

The Ghana Stock Exchange in 2013 experienced another outstanding performance of listed equities since its establishment in 1990. The GSE Composite Index which measures the performance of the entire market went up by 78.81%, obviously one of the best in Africa. In US dollar ($) terms it was up by 55% second to Malawi in Africa. The exceptional 2013 performance was buoyed largely by increased investor awareness and good operating results of many of the listed companies supported by the renewed investor confidence in the Ghanaian market and economy.
