We are a leading source of intelligence for investing, travel and entrepreneurship in the Caribbean region, as well as Bermuda and the Bahamas.
Our readers are investment professionals and entrepreneurs looking to identify thematic investment ideas, as well as travel aficionados seeking meaningful and unique experiences.


The Caribbean represents an ideal investment opportunity for individuals who are creative and can look beyond the initial veneer of a tourism-centric region.
In many of these countries, you’ll find an educated and intelligent workforce, a progressive banking system, ease of doing business, a stable political environment, favorable tax policies, and reliable infrastructure. There are challenges, but an innovative entrepreneur figures out how to get around those and converts them into actionable opportunities.


Most investors in North American securities tend to overlook the Caribbean stock markets at the risk of missing out on differentiated exposure to rising emerging and frontier market economies.
There are also attractive opportunities in private equity, venture capital, real estate and infrastructure, offering exceptional diversification to an investment professional’s portfolio. One of our goal on this site is to highlight such opportunities.
