    Making the Right Lynk With Your Money

    Making the Right Lynk With Your Money

    It's The Jamaica Stock Exchange & You Podcast, and I am your host Heneka Watkis-Porter. From banking under the mattress, to banking on Lynk, surely we have come a far way when it comes to handling our money.

    Today, we are making the link between Jamaica's Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) and Lynk. Lynk is currently the only approved wallet provider of the BOJ's CBDC and is available through the National Commercial Bank (NCB). Today, Kemoi Burke, Brand & Communications Manager, Lynk will take us through this final episode in Season 5 of the Jamaica Stock Exchange and You podcast.

    Some of what we looked at were:


    Setting up accounts for consumers and merchants
    Jam-Dex, CBDC, Lynk...what is the connection?
    How does it work?

    And lots more.

    Budgeting: A Key Component of Investing

    Budgeting: A Key Component of Investing

    It's The Jamaica Stock Exchange & You Podcast, and I am your host, Heneka Watkis-Porter. Some financial moves require huge down payments at a time. Investing isn't necessarily one of those. You don't require to upfront a large sum to start. It requires that you budget for it, as it is necessary to achieve your financial goals in the time you want. Essentially, it is about paying yourself first but we all know it is easier said than done in the real world of bills and other expenses that seemingly pop up out of nowhere. To discuss is Kevin Hemans, Financial Solutions Advisor, CUMAX Wealth Management

    Some of what we looked at were:


    Reasons persons don't invest
    How does debt impact investing?
    Setting goals
    CUMAX solutions for investing
    Money mindset

    And lots more.
