A highly regarded former Jamaican international trade negotiator often maintained that it is firms that compete in the global marketplace, not countries, the logic being that an economy is an agglomeration of firms and therefore a national economy is only as internationally competitive as its firms are. The JN Group has astutely hired experienced British financial staff to give the market confidence.
The CEO of the new financial entity will be Mr. Dean Fensome, the former C.E.O. of Homesdale Building Society, and the board of directors will be chaired by former Bank of England senior adviser, Mr. Ian Marshall. We exhort the Jamaicans and Jamaican companies at home and especially in the UK to support the JN Bank as nationals from India, Israel, Turkey, Mexico and many other countries are wont to support their nationally owned companies.
