The JMMB Group, through its wholly-owned subsidiary JMMB International Limited (JMMB International), officially began operations in the Caribbean island nation of Barbados.
The entry to Barbados marks the fourth Caribbean nation in which the group has a physical presence, the others being Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic.
The announcement of JMMB Group’s expansion to Barbados was made during the company’s quarterly investor briefing, where Keith Duncan, JMMB Group CEO revealed, “As at October 12, we are up and running in Barbados…and we are happy that we are able to consolidate (our operations) across the region and looking forward to growth and acquiring market share, having done so in the past (in other countries) and we look forward to driving results.”
No stranger to the Barbados market, the JMMB Group had already been serving a cadre of Barbadian business clients remotely, primarily via its representatives based in Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago. Now, with a physical location in Barbados, JMMB International will be able to better offer financial expertise and exceptional client care, all provided by the team based at the new local office.
JMMB International is a licensed securities dealer that will be initially offering a concise suite of investment solutions to meet the financial needs of institutions; government and state-related entities; corporate entities; and high net worth individuals. The investment products and services that will be offered include: JMMB International Access (an online international brokerage service); access to regional equity and fixed income markets; as well as various capital markets solutions. Additional financial products and services will be made available, as the business’ operations expand over time.
The JMMB International team of financial advisors is being led by its Trinidad & Tobago-based CEO, Tricia Kissoon, who is ably supported by the Barbados-based head of business development and executive director, Michael Jordan. The JMMB International team is excited about the opportunity that this new location gives them, to both deepen and grow client relationships.
In expressing delight about the opening, Kissoon said, “As a member of a major regional financial conglomerate, we are extremely delighted to now be able to bring JMMB’s unique approach to financial partnership to Barbados. Rooted in our core value of love, my team and I are committed to providing a superior client experience, along with customised integrated financial solutions that are tailored to suit our clients’ unique needs.”
Echoing her sentiments, business development lead Michael Jordan shared that “JMMB International’s team of experts are committed to offering a holistic approach to support our clients’ growth, while partnering with them through the various stages of their financial life cycle, in a way that is easy, enjoyable, empowering and in their best interest”.
In speaking to the strategic role that this entry to Barbados will play in the further growth and expansion of the JMMB Group across the Caribbean region, the JMMB Group CEO first praised the team for their hard work and commitment to achieving the goal of opening JMMB’s first office in Barbados.
“We saw this as another opportunity to further build on our goal of providing integrated financial solutions across the region, while seeking to uniquely address client needs, especially as they try to attain their financial objectives, all while navigating challenging national, regional and global economies. I am confident that our team will work to partner with our clients in a way that provides win-win outcomes for all.”
JMMB International’s office is located on the second floor of the Hastings Business Centre, Hastings, Christ Church.
