The Ghana Wealth Report for 2015 was released by Goodman AMC. The report is based on a comprehensive study of more than 100 successful entrepreneurs and investors in Ghana as well as how and what they invest in. This report makes known of fascinating insights about the profiles and net worth of the 80 richest people in Ghana and also provides a compendious review of the wealth sector in Ghana.
Findings from the report shows that tremendous amounts of wealth has been accumulated by Ghanaians during the past 20 years. The report has discovered some intriguing data about the wealthy in Ghana and how they impact on Ghana’s economy and policies.
Ghana’s 80 Richest People control $2.5 billion which represents 6.4% of Ghana’s GDP, they have a combined wealth of $29.3 billion total and employ over 150,000 Ghanaians directly.
Goodman AMC predicts that the wealth held by the wealthiest people in Ghana will rise 8.7% during Ghana’s election year in 2016 next year and decline by 2.1% in 2017.


It has also been quite clear from this report that 92% of the wealthy entrepreneurs and investors in Ghana do not have more capital invested in the Ghana Stock Exchange. The report notes that majority of them do not have equity allocations on the Ghana Stock Exchange and haven’t gone public with their businesses, though most increased their equity holdings in Dubai, Switzerland, South Africa and Frankfurt, Germany.
Another major observation by the Ghana Wealth Report by Goodman AMC ascertains the import reliability of Ghana’s economy; 83% of wealthy entrepreneurs in this report are engaged in the business of importing commodities into Ghana.
Goodman AMC’s Ghana Wealth Report discovered 3 billionaires and 77 multimillionaires who all form part of a group of individuals called the Ultra-High-Net-Worth Individuals (UHNWI). Goodman AMC placed the UHNWI cap at $100 million; meaning that only Ghanaian entrepreneurs and investors with a net worth of $100 million and above were considered for this report.


The Ultra-High-Net-Worth Individuals in Ghana are holding so much cash due and not investing in Ghana due to the current market volatility in the country and for lifestyle needs. This suggests that the current financial crisis in Ghana lingers on.
On the 80 Richest People in Ghana list, 5 are women; making Patricia Poku-Diaby the richest woman in Ghana with a net worth of $720 million followed by Theresa Oppong-Beeko, Kate Quartey-Papafio and Gifty Lamptey and Grace Amey-Obeng in that order.
According to this wealth report, Charles Ampofo is the richest person in Ghana and he made his fortune through Kampac Oil; an oil and gas firm based in the business hub of Dubai. He has a net worth of $1.46 billion.
The second on the rich list with an estimated net worth of $1.3 billion is Ernesto Taricone.The vast majority of Taricone’s wealth comes from real estate and his business interest in the aluminium, agriculture, construction and forestry.
The youngest multimillionaire currently in Ghana with a net worth of $125 million is Mike Nyinaku; he is 39 years and the founder of The BEIGE Group, with his primary source of wealth being The BEIGE Capital, a financial institution in Ghana.
The Ghana Wealth Report has also tracked the richest families in Ghana who inherited their wealth and continue to grow their family fortune. The wealthiest family in Ghana according to this Wealth Report is the Irani Family, whose wealth originated when 2 brothers Anthony Irani and Edward Irani both of Lebanese descent came into Ghana in 1967 and set up a flour mill. The Irani Brothers and Others Limited went on to become the largest producer of flour in Ghana.
They are followed by the Awuah-Darko Family who have made their fortune in the insurance and finance sector of Ghana’s economy. The current Awuah-Darko’s inherited VANGUARD Assurance from their late father, Nana Ampem Awuah Darko. The family has built on their late father’s legacy and fortune and now have 4 subsidiaries under the VANGUARD Group and about 10 other companies which are each owned by relatives
