The Many Lessons of Mishka Myers

I have been working in the financial industry for the past four years. I went to school, and I worked during the summer, gaining valuable

As a Client Support Officer (as well as a relief Cambio Officer) with JMMB, I often work directly with our clients. As a CSO, I am here to ensure that proper information is gathered from clients to better fulfil their needs. Every person we work with has different needs and different dreams. I also assist in the transactions of the Personal Portfolio Management Centre’s high-net-worth clients. Then, as a Cambio Officer, I will settle a wider net of JMMB clients’ daily foreign exchange trades. And speaking of the Personal Portfolio Management Centre — every day I look forward to going to work with my PPM family. We have a diverse range of personalities that make work engaging. Every person brings something different and unique to the table, and I enjoy the many conversations we have.

One of the reasons I decided to pursue a career in the financial industry was due to its diversity. It’s complex and there is always something new to discover. In addition, it’s a practical industry — it offers something everyone can use in one form or another.

oriented thinker.”

The knowledge that I have gained from working in finance has been useful in my own life. I have been able to apply principles I learned working at both the BOJ and JMMB to make more informed decisions and better my standard of living. JMMB is a company that believes in each of its team members’ goals and abilities. I deeply admire the way the company actively encourages team members to have multiple streams of income in order to build a better life for themselves. This, along with many other aspects, shows me that JMMB truly believes in the betterment of every Jamaican. Another aspect of JMMB I appreciate is the challenge. The work itself affords me the ability to learn more about myself and the industry I work in. Every day is a new learning experience. There is always a new lesson on how to become a solution-oriented thinker. It’s through constant learning that I can better serve clients.

When I am not with my PPM family, I spend much of my time exploring Jamaica and going to the river or the beach with my loved ones. You may also find me dancing (one of my God-given talents) or playing the bass guitar! Early next year, I am getting married! I am excited to see what that next chapter in my life will bring. –Mishka Myers
