The Securities and Exchanges Commission (SEC) has cautioned the public against doing business with Tizaa Ghana Fund.
It said the company had not been licensed to engage in investing or trading for returns business in the country and as such, its activities are not regulated by SEC.
Many social media posts over the past week had drawn attention to Tizaa Ghana Fund, which reportedly promises up to 50 percent returns on investment in 10 days.
The posts said the company receives monies between GHC100 and GHC300,000 for its activities and had registered tens of thousands of people.
But according to SEC, the public must be on alert dealing with the company.
“Tizaa Ghana Fund has not been licensed by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to carry out any Capital Market activities including investing or trading for returns as mandated by Section 3 of the Securities Industry Act, 2016 (Act 929). Tizaa Ghana Fund is therefore not regulated by the SEC. The General Public is advised to be cautions with investing in unlicensed products,” SEC noted in a statement.
