What is the Jamaica Social Stock Exchange?

I was a panelist today at the Civil Society Organization’s (CSO) Conference and Closing Out Ceremony under the theme ‘Building capacity and partnership to increase CSO impact and sustainability’. Among the many interesting pieces of information that came up in the discussion was the matter of the new Jamaica Social Stock Exchange. Rather than repeat the press release I point to the link issued yesterday, What is the Jamaica Social Stock Exchange? However, the basic idea is for social enterprise projects of J$5-25 million to be listed so that funding can be procured through donations (‘investments’ or ‘share holdings’) to the exchange.

Coming months will indicate how and if social enterprises and investors are attracted to this new market.
