Barbados Advocate – There is a need for stock exchanges in Barbados and the Caribbean to attract new types of products and market activities.
Marlon Yarde, general manager of the Barbados Stock Exchange (BSE) has made the suggestion while addressing a recent function in Jamaica.
He spoke on the topic, “Strengthening Institu-tional Development in the Regional Capital Markets.
There are stock exchanges in Barbados, The Bahamas, Guyana, Jamaica, Eastern Caribbean, and Trinidad and Tobago.
Expansion must be done in a more co-ordinated way into the fixed income and debt market as internationally the market for these is even larger than for equity securities.
