Prime Minister Andrew Holness is urging Jamaicans to acquire shares in public companies listed on the island’s stock exchange. “I am encouraging Jamaicans to buy shares in these public companies when they are placed on the Stock Exchange so that they can own some of these assets and share in the capital gains and in the profits of these assets when these companies are listed,” Holness told the 50th anniversary of the Jamaica Stock Exchange Regional Investments & Capital Markets Conference on Tuesday night.
