Ghana has a stable political system, wealth of natural resources and a dynamic economy which is flourishing. It has earned accolades for its peaceful political transition and firm commitment to democracy which has expedited the growth in Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) flows to the country.   Building on the significant natural resources present in the country, Ghana has now redirected its efforts to build its physical infrastructure through an ambitious reform program to improve the investment climate for both local and international investors. This effort has won appreciation from the World Bank with Ghana being recognized as the best place for business in the ECOWAS region. During and after the financial crisis when the world was reeling under the economic crisis, Ghana maintained a high growth rate.

Investment in the stock market was eased through the Foreign Exchange Act, 2006 (Act 723) which allows individual foreign investors to buy up to 10% equity in any stock and institutional investors can invest up to 74% which can be waived in special circumstances. The exchange has grown in leaps and bounds and has registered tremendous growth through the lean year following the financial crisis which saw a flight of capital from developed countries.
