THE GOLD MONEY MARKET FUND (GMMF) UPDATES
Accra, May 2, 2023: We thank all shareholders for their continued patience and support as we work to turn around the challenges facing the Fund. Kindly find below new updates on GMMF and the way forward.
GMMF’s value per share as of 31st March 2023 was GHS 0.2058. The above price is based on only validated assets of the Fund.
The Fund’s assets under management for the same period were ~GHS 100.20 million (representing validated assets). Out of this, only ~GHS 13.88 million was liquid and invested in interest earning securities.
~GHS 86.32 million (being the difference between ~GHS 100.20 million and GHS 13.88 million is the value of GMMF’s assets that have been validated but not yet paid to Ashfield Investment Managers (“Ashfield”) for the benefit of shareholders).
An amount of ~GHS 151 million representing GMMF’S claims against GN Savings and Loans Ltd (In Receivership) is yet to be validated by the Receiver. These claims are being investigated by the Economic and Organized Crime Office (EOCO). We continue to engage the Receiver and will update you on progress thereon.
Annual General Meeting (AGM)
An AGM for shareholders is expected to be scheduled in 3Q 2023, following which the Fund will allow new and existing shareholders to make deposits and withdrawals from their investments. Further details on the AGM and how to make a deposit or redemption will be communicated in due time.
A shareholder whose account has been validated will be able to redeem only the liquid portion of their investment.
Client statements will be shared after the AGM to communicate the value of shareholders’ investments. Please note that your statement will be based on only validated assets and will therefore exclude ~60.11% (~GHS 151 million stated above) of assets that are yet to be validated by the Receiver in relation to GMMF’s claim against GN Savings and Loans Ltd (In Receivership).
Withdrawals and Deposits
Our primary goal is to ensure the Sustainability, Liquidity, and Growth of shareholders’ funds. ~GHS 13.88 million, representing GMMF’s liquid assets, are currently held in investments to improve returns in anticipation of shareholders’ desire to access their funds.
