Sagicor Investments is launching a new Initial Public Offering – Sagicor Select Funds.

In a statement last evening, Sagicor says Jamaicans will be able to invest in 23 of the country’s biggest financial companies for just $1 a share, and a minimum investment of only $ JMD1000.

CEO of Sagicor Investments, Kevin Donaldson, is hailing it as an industry first for Jamaica and the Caribbean.

Donaldson says they’re hoping to attract more young investors to the stock market, following the success of the Wigton IPO.
