As the world climbs out of a difficult recession, a Barbadian financial advisor suggests that now may be the time to invest.

According to Jeremy Stephen of the Barbados Business Enterprise Corp. (BBEC), with global stock markets rebounding, resources and opportunity are becoming more abundant. "I am sure that investing in government treasuries, bonds and debentures will provide strong returns in the medium term. Here in Barbados, Government is now very ambitious in charting a new course and, although they've been creative in how they acquire finance so far, their cheapest way is via their traditional products," explained Stephen.
