Mr. Grant commented, “It was a pleasure to have an informed discussion with this group which allowed all of us a chance to discuss ideas on the future of the Bahamian capital markets.  The capital markets are the result of the efforts of regulators, investors and companies, the Rotary Sunrise Membership included persons from all of these areas, leading to a dynamic conversation.”

Rotary is made up of three parts: Rotary Clubs, Rotary International and the Rotary Foundation. Rotary was one of the first service organizations in the world. It was formed in 1905 by Paul P. Harris who was a Chicago attorney. The purpose was to create a meeting place where professionals could form lifelong friendships and exchange ideas. The pillars of Rotary help bring individuals together, support global programs and fund projects, respectively.

The President of Rotary Sunrise Mr. Leroy Archer commented; “Mr. Grant was articulate and informative. Our members had many questions, but Mr. Grant was able to explain how trading works and the role of BISX. It feels great to now understand what BISX does and how to go about investing. We would appreciate if Mr. Grant could meet with us again in the future.”
