DCSX and Vertex Host The Investment Conference of the Year!

The Dutch Caribbean Securities Exchange (DCSX) in collaboration with Vertex Investments NV is pleased to be hosting an Investment Conference like no other. The Investment Conference is dubbed “Roadmap to Market Proficiency” and will be held on Thursday, November 23, 2017 at Curacao Maritime Institute starting at 3:30pm.


We are honored to have as our Guest Speaker Mrs. Marlene Street-Forrest, Managing Director of the Jamaica Stock Exchange. Mrs. Street Forrest has headed the Jamaican Exchange for over 17 years and will be speaking among others on the success factors that were implemented years ago, to move Jamaica from a culture of doubt regarding the role of an Exchange to being the #1 Exchange in 2016! All of us can learn a lot from these “real life” insights. We will be better able to adapt to the needed modifications in our capital market thinking, given the similar challenges both countries face in terms of size of country, culture and being a part of the Caribbean, we share the same unique issues and concerns. Yet we have the same opportunities as well!


And then we have another “real life” visiting speaker, Mr. John Mahfood, the CEO of Jamaica Teas (A Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (SME) that was recently listed), who will be sharing his insights and experiences of listing a SME on an Exchange.


Ministers Dr. S.  Martina and Mr. K. Gijsbertha among other prominent local industry stakeholders are supporting this important event by participating also in our panel discussion, titled: The Way Forward for Curacao.


The Conference promises to be engaging and insightful for our local investment community as we explore how best to incorporate proven Caribbean based success factors for our local markets and for Curacao’s success!
