The CSE was happy to welcome the Jamaica Stock Exchange to open the market on October 24th, 2019 at the CSE Media Centre.
Incorporated in 1968, with operation starting in 1969, the Jamaica Stock Exchange’s main objective is to contribute to the growth and development of the countries in which it operates. The Jamaica Stock Exchange does this by facilitating the mobilization, exchange, and expansion of capital.
“It is indeed a historic day to be opening the market at the CSE, and it means a lot to us. What it means is a deepening of the relationship between the Jamaica Stock Exchange and the Canadian Securities Exchange. There is a lot that we can do in terms of partnership, and it really comes through in respect to our strategic objective of having a global reach,” said Marlene Street Forrest, Managing Director of the Jamaica Stock Exchange.
“It deepens our relationship significantly on an economic level. It creates a new financial architecture, which I’m sure many companies will be able to take advantage of – both Canadian and Jamaican – and we’ll just flourish,” added Lloyd Wilks, Consul General of Jamaica.
Ian McNaughton, Chairman of the Jamaica Stock Exchange, was also in attendance at the Market Open, along with other valued members of the JSE team.
