2023 Banking and Insurance Fair kicks off
Experts and players in the country’s banks, insurance, pensions and securities sector will converge on Accra from Wednesday for this year’s edition of the Banking and Insurance Fair.
Dubbed “The Financial Fair”, it will take place simultaneously at the University of Ghana Business School (UGBS) Park, near the University of Professional Studies Accra (UPSA) and the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) Park in Central Accra.
The three days fair, which begins tomorrow and closes on Friday (October 13), will be held on the theme: “Making prudent financial decisions in times of adversities”.
Key to recovery
The event is expected to draw key stakeholders in the banking and insurance industries to deliberate on expediting the recovery of the institutions from recent struggles.
There will be sales, marketing, education, business opportunities, partnerships and networking at the fair and more.
There will also be a “Business Forum” which will address all challenges in making prudent financial decisions in times of adversities from creative ideas, entrepreneurs, investors and corporate bodies.
The CEO of Kotlers Management Service, Samuel Ogyiri Sackey, organisers of the event said the importance of the banking and insurance sectors to the growth of the country’s economy could not be understated.
He said the fair would provide the ideal platform for financial and insurance institutions to build networks and strike partnerships with investors, clients and others.
The financial sector, which is a strong bedrock for economic growth in Ghana and beyond, has in recent times witnessed some turbulence. This has necessitated the need to deepen and further engage the general public on financial literacy and inclusion, especially in light of the fact that about 70 per cent of the Ghanaian populace are unfamiliar with financial knowledge.
“I must reiterate that the fair will parade financial institutions in good standing with their respective regulators, thus, customers can be rest assured of transacting business with the right institutions,” he said.
