STANLIB Ghana is a multi-specialist asset manager that connects retail and institutional clients with multiple investment opportunities across asset classes and markets. STANLIB Ghana is managed by a team of local investment specialists from the company’s offices in Accra.

Our products include:

Our client base consists of individuals, corporates, institutions, organisations and associations with various investment objectives. Investors may invest at regular intervals or in once-off lump sum investments. With clients throughout Ghana and beyond, we make use of our sister company, Stanbic Bank’s extensive branch network to service our clients.

We believe in multi-specialist investing to achieve extraordinary results.

In an increasingly dynamic and interconnected world, our understanding of the complex connections of markets, industries, sectors and global events gives us a competitive edge to adapt to the environment, and make more informed investment decisions that lead to better investment outcomes.
