Jamaica Stock Exchange’s Regional Investments and Capital Markets
The Regional Investments and Capital Markets hosted annually by the Jamaica Stock Exchange (JSE) is in its 16th year. The Conference attracts an elite group of executives and sponsors from different industries in Jamaica and across the region. There is no better testimony to the success of any Conference than the fact that the major sponsors remain on-board year after year. Jefferies Group LLC is the Conference’s a leading global investment banking firm that provides investors, companies and governments with a full range of investment banking and wealth management services across the financial spectrum.
Conference 2021 will be, due to the COVID 19 pandemic, held from Tuesday, 26th January to Thursday, 28th January 2021 in person at The Jamaica Pegasus Hotel, Kingston, Jamaica as well as VIRTUALLY, under the theme “Re-structuring, Restoring, and Renewing: Re-Connecting the Pillars of Capital Markets”. By its successful staging each year, JSE’s Regional Conference has earned its place as a calendar event to which government officials, leading experts in business, investors and other stakeholders, locally and worldwide look forward to attending each year.
Conference 2021 will, due to COVID-19 pandemic, held using a hybrid format. This means facilitating a face-to-face component as well as an online component. Based on the Social (Physical ) Distancing and other COVID-19 protocols, The Jamaica Pegasus Hotel can accommodate two hundred (200) persons, comfortably.
The Jamaica Stock Exchange will have the 200 persons participating in the face-to-face component and we are looking to have another 700 participants online. We are anticipating that the Prime Minister of Jamaica, the Most Honourable Andrew Holness, will present his message before the face to face audience. We further anticipate having another seven prime ministers from within the region and Europe joining the conference, a positive leverage to the Exchange
Conference 2021 is set to be more exciting and entertaining than ever as there will be more persons in attendance than normal, and speakers and participants will be able to have more interaction as we are looking to target participants from across the globe.
We expect to have people join the Conference from Asia, Africa, Europe, North and South America, Latin America and the Caribbean. This shows that Conference 2021 reach will be greater and this will enhance the popularity of JSE’s Conference, making it among the best conferences in the world.
