The Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) has revealed that about GHC2 billion worth of claims presented by customers of defunct fund managers are not credible.

According to the Director-General of the SEC, Daniel Ogbarmey Tetteh, the process has to be complete before payment can be made to customers.

He explained that following the validation process, the original value of GH¢12.5 billion has now shrunk to GH¢10 billion, Ghana Web reports.

Ogbarmey went on to say that "the liquidation process has started although because of the processes involved, we can't state exactly when it will end. But hopefully, we don't have to wait for liquidation to end before payment starts.”

He further revealed that officials working on the validation of claims have completed around 50% of the process.

In March 2020, customers of defunct fund managers were assured of the payment of their locked up funds after claims have been validated.
