At MVL Stockbrokers Limited, we are stockbrokers and wealth managers serving the investing public since 1990 …
We have over 30 years of experience providing expert financial advice for both businesses and individuals.
MVL opened to the public in April 1990 and conducted its first trade on the Floor of the Jamaica Stock Exchange in August of that year, when the Jamaica Stock Exchange’s trading floor was in the Bank of Jamaica Building at Nethersole Place in Downtown Kingston. It is hard to imagine with today’s online trading platform, but in 1990 we traded our first stocks, using the Open Outcry system.
At MVL we do one thing, and we do it well. We serve our clients who are taking positions in securities’ markets. On our clients’ behalf, we execute, buy and sell orders for stocks and other securities principally through the Jamaica Stock Exchange, as well as over the counter. Our principals can call upon decades of experience in investments and finance to ensure that we get it right.
From those early beginnings to today’s electronic trading, MVL has always been a stockbroker putting its clients first, ensuring that they win the investment race!
