KINGSTON, Jamaica, Thursday November 28, 2019 – A new entity
has been launched aimed at fostering development of the local and regional
alternative investment industry.

The
not-for-profit entity, dubbed the Caribbean Alternative Investment Association
(CARAIA), will promote expansion of private equity, venture capital, real
estate, private capital, mezzanine financing and other alternative investment
instruments.

It is anchored
by the Development Bank of Jamaica (DBJ), through its Jamaica Venture Capital
Programme (JVCP). The DBJ has been able to mobilize members of Jamaica’s
investment community, as well as international fund managers, to participate in
establishing and operationalizing the association.

Speaking at the
official launch, Managing Director at the DBJ, Milverton Reynolds, said
CARAIA’s establishment is one of the deliverables under a technical agreement
with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) in 2016, for the establishment
of a private equity venture capital industry in Jamaica.

He said the DBJ
is pleased to have guided the process for the development of the Association,
which is private-sector led.

Reynolds said CARAIA
is “good for Jamaica and the wider Caribbean when taken against the background
that, globally, the Caribbean is being considered a block”.

“It, therefore,
means that the Association will become the voice that speaks collectively on
behalf of its members, thereby placing the Caribbean, more effectively, on the
world’s alternative investment stage,” he added.

CARAIA’s
strategic focus will be on research and information dissemination; advocacy at
the local, regional and international levels; fostering regional institutional
development, as well as governance and professional development of members.

Over the
short-term, the association will be Jamaica-focused, but the entity will target
the wider Caribbean and Central America over the medium to long-term.

The Advisory Council of CARAIA includes Chairman, Christopher Williams; Joseph Matalon; Nicholas Scott; Jason Morris; Keith Collister; Brian Frazer; Steven Gooden; and Audrey Richards.
