The General Manager, FCIS, Jason Julien provided the audience with an overview of the state of the world economy and the current challenges for the local investor. “What is the local investor to do in this current climate of low investment yields and weakening TT dollar? Global Investment Solutions is part of the solution to these challenges.”

FCIS in conjunction with bmobile provided on-site demonstrations of the GIS service and is offering the first 100 clients to sign up for the service a 15 per cent discount on any Samsung Galaxy smart phone or tablet device from bmobile.
