Ibrahim Mahama, Dr. Duffuor and others in Top 20 richest Ghanaians list

Ghanaian management and consulting blog, Goodman AMC, has released what it says is ‘Ghana Wealth Report’, which it says captures the richest people in Ghana.

The report follows Goodman AMC tracking the wealth of successful entrepreneurs and investors in Ghana who have $100 million or more in assets and investments.

The findings reveal that the top 80 richest people in Ghana have a combined wealth of $29.3 billion and employ over 150,000 Ghanaians directly.

Goodman AMC discovered 3 billionaires and 77 multimillionaires who all form part of a group of individuals called the Ultra-High-Net-Worth Individuals (UHNWI). 

The report captures five women – Patricia Poku-Diaby, Theresa Oppong-Beeko, Kate Quartey-Papafio and Gifty Lamptey and Grace Amey-Obeng.

The report does not cover politicians who acquired their wealth by virtue of them being in active politics and monarchs who acquired their wealth through their royal status, according to Goodman AMC.

How Net Worth Was Calculated

Goodman AMC says it calculated net worth by using some degree of estimation to value each person’s assets and properties as well as stakes in public and private firms, and performance on the Ghana Stock Exchange.
