MONTEGO BAY, St James — FOR the past several weeks, analysts have been making predictions of the likely outcomes of the Jamaican economy in the coming months, if measures are not taken to satisfactorily address some issues.
But while there are many predicting gloom, at least one financial entity remains positive that the financial hurdles can be overcome through shrewd investment methods — and the earlier, the better.
"The next few months have so many uncertainties. There are uncertainties that we are certain about and others that we are not certain about, so we will need to hold hands and get through the process together," admitted Robert Drummond, president of First Global Financial Services (FGFS).
Encouraged by the fact that in the worse of financial scenarios, there are always huge benefits to be derived equally from established and untapped opportunities, the financial expert is encouraging FGFS' customers and the wider Jamaican population to start exploring all investment options.
Against this background, Drummond said First Global Financial Services is renewing its commitment to its customers and potential clients so "we can understand better what their concerns are, as well as ensuring that FGFS provides the fullest range of opportunities and investment needs that one may have".
"We have invested heavily in our time and resources to identify the best investment products for all. Therefore, we believe in our commitment and we believe in you," he emphasised.
Drummond was addressing the FGFS' President's Cocktail Reception, held at The Seawind Club in Montego Bay, recently.
The reception is one in a series that are held regularly across Kingston, Mandeville and Montego Bay, outside of the annual customer appreciation events and are usually spearheaded by FGFS.
It is aimed primarily to connect in an intimate and personalised format with its customers, as well as extending its arm of gratitude.
Embolden by the importance of maintaining a strong bond between its customers, Drummond said FGFS remained committed in embracing the key principles of the company — honesty, integrity and trust — which, he said, are very important in determining the institution's longevity.
