Kevin Donaldson
CEO Sagicor Investments Jamaica Limited
KEVIN Donaldson, young executive at Sagicor Group Jamaica, seems to have been destined for his current role as the Chief Executive Officer of Sagicor Investments.

In fact, from as early as 10 years old, Donaldson made his first stock purchase, which set him on the path to becoming a financial analyst, his dream job at the time. The lad, with guidance from his father, purchased shares in Jamaica Broilers, Berger Paints and Caribbean Steel during their initial public offerings.

“That's when I caught the investing bug, as well as started researching and understanding the inner workings of the business and business leaders to fully grasp how investing worked,” Donaldson said.

With a passion for helping and mentoring young people, Donaldson encourages people to get an early start in investing, by understanding from an early age the concept of investment.

He's, however, not just all about work, crunching numbers and watching stock markets; he is an avid music lover of all genres, who from the age of 15 was busy planning events and other activities.

“As a youngster I was very active, I enjoyed playing music, sports and loved being outdoors,” he recounted.

But even while having fun, the proud Wolmer's old boy was determined to make his mark professionally. Using a personal axiom to describe his journey so far — “pressure produces diamonds” — Donaldson reflected on his personal growth and development over the years.
