Start Right: A Guide to Financial Investments in Ghana
This book, Start Right – A guide to financial Investments in Ghana is what I would refer to as a holistic Investment manual for any business leader, entrepreneur, investment banker and all who aspire to create and sustain their wealth.
It covers the entire landscape of Investments, taking you through a journey of appreciating, understanding and beginning your resolve to a wealthy future. It unravels the intricacies of Investments that is shrouded in perceived complexity and mystery. Its language is basic to the very understanding of new investors, while tackling all relevant branches of the investing process, appealing as well to the professional and sophisticated minds. It adequately tackles and answers vital questions, such as:
- How can I invest
- Where can I invest
- Which Investment instruments are good for me
- What returns do I expect
- What risks am I exposed to and how can I mitigate them
- Who can help me make my Investment choices…
The author takes pains to illustrate to the reader on the operations of the Capital and Money Markets and the dynamics of their operations. I recommend this book to the novice and sophisticated investor, entrepreneurs, Investment bankers, students and all who desire to create sustainable wealth for themselves and generations behind them.
