Investing in Jamaica in 2022 is a smart idea. In many ways, Jamaica is well-positioned to take off economically as a country. Many political, economic, and social indicators support this notion.
I had the opportunity to sit down with Sagicor Investment Advisor Jermin Vanzie to discuss the possibilities and potential of Jamaica from the perspective of a variety of investment opportunities. Our discussion is rich and value-driven touching on topics from real estate investments to investing in the Jamaican Stock Exchange. Jermin was gracious enough to share many personal and professional experiences through storytelling as examples to learn from and to be inspired by.
