Talk on post-Independence investment options

Social Share

CHANGES IN LOCAL investment options over the years were highlighted this morning as Global Event Planners staged an investment showcase at the Grande Salle.

General manager of the Barbados Stock Exchange, Marlon Yarde pointed out that mutual funds and stocks/shares were two of the newer investment products in the island.

He told his audience that bonds, property ownership and insurance pension plans were part of the investment portfolio prior to Barbados’ Independence 50 years ago and that mutual funds and shares came on stream post-1966.

Yarde was speaking on the topic What Are The Changes to Investment Products Over 50 Years of Independence?

He took the opportunity to encourage people to have a clear objective of what they want to achieve and to plan what they want to achieve accordingly. 

 A key to that is to have a financial plan, he said. (YB)
