Fidelity Bank in partnership with Fidelity Securities Limited held the second edition of its thought leadership series, Fidelity Presents…with a focus on asset and wealth management for individuals and organizations.
The webinar, which streamed live on Facebook on the theme, COVID-19 Asset and Wealth Management Realities: Tapping the Right Opportunities for Growth, brought together seasoned industry practitioners to discuss how individuals and organizations can leverage on opportunities to grow their wealth in the midst of the pandemic.
The webinar featured esteemed panelists such as Sampson Akligoh, Director, Financial Sector Division of the Ministry of Finance; Rev. Daniel Ogbarmey Tetteh, Director General, Securities Exchange Commission (SEC); Akwasi Adu-Boahene, Head of Fidelity Securities Limited (FSL); and Dr. Suzy Puplampu, CEO of OctaneDC Limited.
Samuel Aidoo, Deputy Managing Director (Wholesale Banking) of Fidelity Bank Ghana, said, “asset management firms are not shielded from the effects of COVID-19 and will need to reprioritize and reorganize their operating model in order to survive. Clients will still require firms to deliver value in the midst of the turbulence associated with this pandemic. This is why we see this program as an opportunity to engage and share knowledge as industry players and get perspectives from our regulator and government on how we thrive during such volatile and uncertain times.”
“Even though the pandemic has challenged the normal operational methods of the investment industry, it also presents unfolding opportunities for innovation and growth,” he added.
Panelists at the webinar disclosed that the future of the industry is positive and advised asset and wealth management organizations to leverage on ICT to improve on their penetration of services to ensure more people benefit from the great potential of the industry.
Akwasi Adu-Boahene, Head of Fidelity Securities Limited, added that asset and wealth management firms “should be open to new ideas, form partnerships to grow stronger and offer better services to their clients.”
Fidelity Securities Limited (FSL), last year launched two collective investment schemes: Fidelity Balanced Trust and the Fidelity Fixed Income Trust. These investment products are meant for individuals, organizations and associations who seek to build wealth to address future needs.
