The Jamaica Stock Exchange will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary in
2019 and as a prelude to this celebration the Stock Exchange unveiled its 50th Anniversary logo and tagline
to the public at a Bell Ringing Ceremony at its head office at 40 Harbour Street, today. At this event, the
JSE took the opportunity to unveil its App for Apple devices.
In welcoming persons to the Exchange and speaking to the events that the Stock Exchange will hosting in
2019, Mrs. Marlene Street Forrest, Managing Director of the JSE, told the audience that “2019 marks a
major milestone in the history of the Jamaica Stock Exchange. 2019 is our 50th Anniversary celebration
and we will be celebrating in style and appropriately, as not many companies are able to achieve this
milestone. Statistics show that 90% of every company that starts fail. However, the Stock Exchange has
not only managed to survive but has made and continue to make significant contributions to the Jamaican
economy of which we are extremely proud.”
Mrs. Street Forrest went on to list some of activities that will be undertaken during 2019, among which are:
 The JSE’s Annual Conference from January 22-24, 2019 at The Jamaica Pegasus Hotel
 Church Services
 5K Run where proceeds will be donated to charity
 50th Anniversary Limited Edition Publication
 A Customer Appreciation Day and
 Market Meet the Market
Chair of the Logo Committee, Mrs. Kadyll McNaught-Hermitt, speaking at the event stated, “In unveiling
this logo and theme, we are telling the JSE’s story: the story of a fair, efficient and transparent stock market.
We are telling the story of the vision of the founding members in 1969, when they opened the doors of JSE
in making the stock market in Jamaica a reality. We are telling the story of the resilience of our past and
present Board of Directors, Management Team and Staff and our Member Dealers who have weathered
many storms but remain strong and resolute.”
Mr. Garth Kiddoe, Chairman of the Jamaica Central Securities Depository (JCSD), spoke to a recent
achievement in the JSE’s history; the accreditation of the e-Campus Post Graduate Diploma by the
University Council of Jamaica (UCJ). He stated that this is a great milestone by the JSE and will redound
to the benefit of the JSE over the long run.
Miss Suzette McNaught, IT Manager took the opportunity to unveil the JSE App for Apple devices. She
explained the features of the App to the audience and encouraged users within Jamaica, the Caribbean
and the world to download the App and to keep in touch with current activities in our market. She asked the
audience to provide feedback to allow for improvement where necessary.
The Chairman of the JSE, Mr. Ian McNaughton, in his closing remarks stated “The financial industry, it is
thought, is made up of people who produce investment deals, create investment products and make money
for companies and the investing public. However, today proves that we are much more than that as we
have unleashed a part of our creative side to the public. I would like to use this opportunity to remind us of
the achievements of the Exchange. In 2015, we were voted the Number One Stock Exchange in the world,
although we are a very small Stock Exchange by international standards. Since then we are still within the
top 10 ranking of stock exchanges in the world. As we Jamaicans would say “wi little, but wi tallahwah”.
The winners of the logo and tagline competition were, Miss Kaydene Cammock who walked away with the
logo prize while Miss Charlene Steer and Miss Charlene Myers were declared joint winners for the tagline.
