#Trending: Meet the 80 richest people in Ghana

I usually don’t believe or care for these lists but this one has been trending so I decided to publish it for you guys to know 80 of the richest guys in GH right now according to Goodman AMC:

 

The richest people in Ghana have been revealed after extensive research by Ghanaian management and consulting firm, Goodman AMC. Unlike their Nigerian counter-parts, wealthy Ghanaians are thought to be conservative in stating their actual wealth ostensibly due to tax obligations and other personal misgivings, but Goodman AMC appears to have gone behind the scene to extract that information and come out with the ‘Ghana Wealth Report’.
The report follows Goodman AMC tracking 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’s Ghana Wealth Report 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 identified Charles Ampofo as the richest man in Ghana with a net worth of $1.46 billion. Ampofo is said to have made his fortune through Kampac Oil, an oil and gas firm based in the business hub of Dubai.
The second richest man in Ghana, according to the report, is $1.3 billion rich Ernesto Tarricone, who is said to have interests in real estate, aluminum, agriculture, construction, and forestry. Tarricone is the owner of Trassaco Valley.
The report also identified Patricia Poku-Diaby as the richest woman in Ghana with a net worth of $720 million. She is into the export of cocoa and cotton. Four other women – Theresa Oppong-Beeko, Kate Quartey-Papafio and Gifty Lamptey and Grace Amey-Obeng – also made the list of 80 Richest Ghanaians. Together, the five richest women in Ghana control $1.62 billion.
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. Ownership of closely-held assets which could not be substantiated was also left out of the calculation.
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.  Read more about that here:
While Goodman AMC’s Ghana Wealth Report is comprehensive and compelling, Graphic Online has not independently authenticated the findings.
Indeed Good man AMC issues a caveat that: “The Ghana Wealth Report is for information purposes only. It is not investment advice…”
