The revocation of the licenses of the specified companies has become necessary as they have largely failed to return client funds which remain locked up and in a number of cases, they have even folded up their operations, Citinewsroom.com reported.

According to SEC, essentially, these companies have failed to perform their functions efficiently, honestly and fairly and in some cases are in continuing breach of the requirements under relevant securities laws, rules or conditions, despite opportunities provided to them by the SEC within a reasonable period of time to resolve all regulatory breaches.

The SEC in 2018 also revoked the license of Menzgold Company Limited.

Till now, the company is still struggling to pay back investor’s funds.

YEN.com.gh reported earlier that a validation process has been started at Menzgold with all clients being asked to submit their documents for authentication and subsequent payment.
