Emmanuel S. E. Leigh Releases the Second Edition of Financial Structures in Sierra Leone

Retired senior civil servant and author, Emmanuel S. E. Leigh, announces the release of “Financial Structures in Sierra Leone – Second Edition,” as he continues to explore the country’s diverse system

Mr. Leigh delves more into the financial structures of Sierra Leone as releases the second edition of the popular expository Financial Structures in Sierra Leone. The author, who worked as a senior civil servant in Sierra Leone for over two decades holding senior accounting positions at the Treasury and some Government Ministries and Departments, leverages his years of experience in the system to give readers a better understanding of the practices of different stakeholders.

Sierra Leone ranks as one of the smallest nations in Africa and the 118th largest country in the world in terms of size. However, the country with over 8 million people, currently boasts of a diverse financial system, which has continued to evolve over the years, amidst the emergence of several solutions from a wide range of services providers. However, citizens of the West African nations, as well as millions of other people across the globe, still do not have a good understanding of the developing financial system, which is where Mr. Leigh is looking to be helpful as he releases “Financial Structures in Sierra Leone – Second Edition.”

The author looks at the formal and informal sectors of the financial structure in Sierra Leone as well as the features of the system, exploring the operations of different stakeholders, including the Central Bank (Bank of Sierra Leone), specialized institutions and their customers – small and medium scale businesses and individuals. Mr. Leigh examines the series of local and international events that have affected the financial system of the country and how Sierra Leone has responded to such occurrences. The book looks at the effect of the Ebola outbreak, the Covid-19 pandemic as well as the debt profile of the country and its effects on the financial system and economy of Sierra Leone.

Financial Structures in Sierra Leone – Second Edition is currently available on Amazon in Kindle and Soft Pasta versions.
