The First Citizens Group
plans to explore South and Cen-
tral America for opportunities
as it seeks to expand while
awaiting approval from the
Securities Exchange Commis-
sion (SEC) to launch on the
T&T Stock Exchange (TTSE).
So said Nyree Alfonso, chair-
person for the group, in an inter-
view with the T&T Guardian.
"The prospectus (for the Initial
Public Offering) was not an
issue. For any IPO we have to
wait on the SEC s approval. It s
not an issue of the prospectus
being a problem, or not a prob-
lem as the case may be, it has
a process to go through. The
issue is before Cabinet as well
to determine the share price,"
In January 2012, the group
opened a representative office in
Costa Rica. Alfonso said that office
will be used to deepen the group s
footprint in other territories such
as Panama and Nicaragua.
"Costa Rica has done well over
the years. It s one of the more sta-
ble countries in Latin and South
America. It s currency is stable, it
has excellent growth in its econ-
"Comparatively with the rest
of the world it has excellent
growth it has not seen a downturn
per se, so we thought it was a very
good platform for us," she said.
"English is widely spoken there-
fore the language is not an issue.
There might be opportunities in
Panama with the expansion of the
canal we want to think we are
well-placed to team up with the
international sector---World Bank,
the various international banking
sectors---to look at putting money
there and making money there."
Alfonso said the group is doing
well given the global climate.
"We, like everybody else are
looking to see how we can grow
the business in a positive way and
we are looking to see how to
increase the footprint outside of
T&T---we moved into Barbados
recently, we moved into Costa Rica
recently, all in those hardened eco-
"We are looking for growth
opportunities; we are looking for
growth prospects aggressively,"
