First Cit­i­zens In­vest­ment Ser­vices hosts Youth Sem­i­nar

The Star (St. Lucia) - - BUSINESS -

First Cit­i­zens In­vest­ment Ser­vices once again hosted its an­nual Young Pro­fes­sion­als’ Sem­i­nar (YPS) un­der the theme “Trans­form­ing Young Suc­cess Into Aged Wealth”. The sem­i­nar fea­tured Rick Barnard, a young en­tre­pre­neur who is the Man­ag­ing Direc­tor and Founder of RJB Ho­tel Sup­plies. Mr. Barnard’s story was one of in­spi­ra­tion to the au­di­ence, as he de­scribed how his pas­sion to op­er­ate his own busi­ness drove him to take risks and work hard at what he wanted. He shared prac­ti­cal ad­vice, from his ex­pe­ri­ence, on achiev­ing fi­nan­cial and busi­ness suc­cess.

Dr. Merle Clarke shared her per­spec­tive on wealth by urg­ing the au­di­ence to con­sider their health con­di­tion as this can have a sig­nif­i­cant im­pact on their qual­ity of life and wealth. As a nephrol­o­gist (kid­ney spe­cial­ist), Dr. Clarke spoke to the chal­lenges of this par­tic­u­lar area of health­care in Saint Lu­cia. As a young per­son her­self, she re­minded par­tic­i­pants of the per­ti­nence of pre­ven­ta­tive health­care.

The au­di­ence re­ceived sound ad­vice on fi­nan­cial plan­ning and how to max­i­mize re­sources to achieve de­sired fi­nan­cial goals. FCIS rep­re­sen­ta­tive Tara Jn. Phillip pre­sented the in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties for young per­sons and re­minded them that the sooner they started work­ing on their goals, the closer they would be to achiev­ing them.

The sem­i­nar, which was held at the Fi­nance Ad­min­is­tra­tion Cen­tre Con­fer­ence Room on May 4, 2017, was spon­sored by The Cell St. Lu­cia, Meme Bête, RJB Ho­tel Sup­plies and Peter and Com­pany Dis­tri­bu­tion. Par­tic­i­pants had the op­por­tu­nity to in­ter­act with the panel, ben­e­fit from some give­aways and en­joy a net­work­ing mixer fol­low­ing the pre­sen­ta­tions. First Cit­i­zens In­vest­ment Ser­vices Lim­ited con­tin­ues to be com­mit­ted to the de­vel­op­ment of youth and pro­mot­ing fi­nan­cial lit­er­acy.
