JSE’s Public Investor Outreach
The Jamaica Stock Exchange (JSE) continues to reshape the financial landscape with our informative and engaging Public Awareness Programmes. We aim to transform how people view the stock market by enabling them to embrace investing in securities on the Exchange as a viable medium for wealth creation.
Based on our success to date, the JSE will continue to host our branded Public Education Outreach Forum. Through each of these events, which enables a partnership between the JSE and our associates, drawn primarily from our member-dealer firms, major towns across the island are visited. We engage in honest discussion with enthusiastic and sometimes skeptical participants, on the role of the stock market and introduce to them to ways they can benefit from investment opportunities in the stock market.
The Exchange publishes a number of publications aimed at assisting investors, potential investors and the investment community to make more informed decisions and generally to provide market updates. These publications are:
- The Stock Market Review
- The Pocket Book
- The Year Book
- Annual Report
- CEO’s Report
- A Guide to the Jamaican Securities Markets
