Now, ordinarily if you have an amount as little as 20 Ghana cedis, you’ll find it a bit difficult buying Treasury Bills with it, so we’re giving people the opportunity to invest their little sums into a pool to be managed in a number of investment portfolios to give them returns that would not have been possible if they had invested in treasury bills or had kept in their bank accounts” he said.
