Assets Under Management (AUM)
The Fund has Assets Under Management (AUM) of over GH¢3.0 billion as of December 31, 2022 from year start value of GH¢1.7 billion, representing about 76% growth over the period. The growth largely was attributed to statutory royalties’ contributions from mining companies and investment income.
MIIF’s portfolio of investments is targeted at maximizing the value of royalties’ income through long term investments in asset classes as specified in the Fund’s Investment Policy Guidelines Statement.
The Fund achieves sustained growth by prioritising co-investment opportunities in the minerals sector value chain. MIIF, through its investment decisions will support small and medium scale players to build institutional capacity and achieve global scale growth.
