Abstract

The main aim of this article is to examine the factors that influence the inflow of financial foreign direct
investment (FDI) into SSA and to understand foreign investors’ perceptions of the role of institutional
factors in facilitating financial FDI inflows and the extent to which the post reform business environment
has been successful in attracting financial FDI inflows into SSA. An in-depth qualitative study
was adopted for the research.

Using two financial multinational corporations as case studies, the environmental factors that influenced their decision to choose Ghana as an investment destination are
examined, as well as the institutional and regulatory factors that affect their current operations and
future investment decisions.
