Auctioning of properties of the collapsed financial institutions is part of the mandate of the Receiver to raise money to pay depositors.
The Receiver was called into action after May 31, 2019, when the 347 microfinance companies, 23 Savings and Loans and Finance Houses had their licences revoked by the Bank of Ghana as part of the financial sector clean-up.
