The regulator has, however, asked customers not to engage in panic withdrawals but rather educate themselves and do the needful.
But, secretary for the aggrieved customers of Gold Coast Management, Joseph Ayitey in an interview on political discussion show, Kukurantumi on Asempa FM, Saturday said SEC rushed.
He expected the regulator to respond to their petition instead of revoking the license of the company.

“Government has not said anything about our petition only to hear their licences have been revoked. Will this revocation bring our monies?” He quizzed.
Mr Ayitey said the government should have engaged the customers before taking the final decision.
