IT’S WORK, IT’S LIFE, IT’S LOVE! Alaine Samuels on Finding Balance

I have always had a love for finance. This

who loves to travel, I get to do just that. Health and wellness also play a big part in my life. My daily routine includes preparing healthy meals and going to the gym. And I can’t forget my family and friends! They all play a huge role in my life, and I truly enjoy spending time with them whenever I get the chance.

“At JMMB, we are more than colleagues and coworkers; we are family!”

passion really started during my high school years and only got stronger when I attended university, where I majored in banking and finance. I went on to earn an MBA in finance, as well.

At JMMB, we are more than colleagues and co-workers; we are family! There is just so much love and respect within my team; it makes JMMB such a pleasant place to work. Plus, it’s an environment that offers a lot of professional growth, development, and challenges for myself and my colleagues alike.

My career trajectory brought me to the JMMB Group. I had always heard about the unique culture at JMMB and thought it would be amazing to be a part of the dynamic team. I had also read a lot

about the co-founder of JMMB, Mrs Joan Duncan.

Mrs Duncan’s story was absolutely inspiring. She had a deep passion for seeing that every Jamaican had the opportunity to turn their dreams into reality, no matter their financial background. I am now a part of that dream, which means everything to me. As a Personal Portfolio Manager at JMMB, it’s incredibly satisfying to know that I played a role in clients achieving their respective goals. Moreso, I have been able to develop a strong relationship with each and every one of them, which makes it all the more rewarding. JMMB fosters a healthy working environment, allowing everyone to be open, honest, and truly themselves. As my colleagues have stated in past editions of the newsletter, JMMB has a culture that is built upon a greater culture of love. There is also a great work-life balance. As someone

After all, you cannot grow without challenges. Every day, I look forward to the new challenges that greet me at my desk, because I get to think creatively to find solutions. Each challenge is unique. Each situation is unique. When I can break through to a solution, knowing I was able to make a difference leaves me with a great feeling of accomplishment, whether it’s a difference for a client or a difference within the company. When I really get down to it, in everything I do, I allow God to guide my steps, and I am presently living in my purpose. I am a winner and never limit myself to a box. –Alaine Samuels, Personal Portfolio Manager
