Aggrieved customers of Gold Coast Fund Management here within the Sekondi – Takoradi Metropolis on Friday, March 15th 2019 besiege the regional office of the Gold Coast Fund Management demanding from the fund managers their investments with them be paid to to them immediately after several attempt to get their locked up capitals failed.
Numbering a little over two hundred saids they have not been able to access either dividends or their capital investment since September 2018 irrespective of all the assurances from fund managers.
According to them, officials of the investment firm, a subsidiary of the GN Group, last year promised that customers will be able to access their investments beginning March 1, 2019 but till date they have not been able to access a cedi from their investments even though their agreed arrangement is due many months ago.
Lamenting to Business Today they emphatically stated that, “we are losing patience with the way fund managers continue to treat us over own investments”, they said.
The heightening frustration faced by these customers has compelled them to resort to this radicals means to get their monies from Gold Coast Fund Management.
Meanwhile, Gold Coast Fund Management on March 10th 2019 announced their commitment in ensuring that all arrears of their customers since 2018 are cleared from this Month going forward.
In a statement signed by the General Manager, Investor Relations and External Affairs, Benjamin Afreh and copied to Various Media House states that the company has disbursed about GHC60 million and are on course to continue to meet the needs of more customers in the weeks ahead.
But efforts to speak to the Fund Managers with regards to last weeks incident in their Takoradi office proves futile.
