“Wealth, if you use it, comes to an end; learning, if you use it, increases.” This old Swahili proverb has always been true, but it is even truer now in the world we find ourselves in.
We are only two decades into the Twenty-First Century but we have witnessed the greatest financial crisis in 80 years, two global recessions and the worst pandemic since the Spanish Flu of 1918-1920. We have also experienced a fundamental change in economic activity as the Knowledge Economy has become arguably the key driver of wealth creation.
At IC we believe that navigating a world which presents uncertainty and opportunity (both in epic proportions) requires the ability to gather information, process it and provide actionable knowledge in relevant time. In the last 10 years we have assisted corporate institutions and pension funds successfully navigate financial markets and manage their assets by delivering excellent results. We have over GH¢4 billion in Ghanaian pension funds under management, have undertaken some of the largest capital market transactions in the country’s history and have zero exposure to failed financial institutions.
Starting this year we will be helping clients manage their finances, develop saving habits, make better investing decisions, understand an extensive range of financial products, plan for retirement and learn about the implications of macroeconomic indicators through a series of succinct, simple and engaging articles in the Insights section of ic.africa.
By this project we hope to take our partnership to a higher level. We want to be part of your financial success story and we hope that you will comment to let us know how these articles have helped you on the journey to financial independence. Thank you for reading.
