Pulse has honed its eye for profit, beauty, and talent to make Jamaica and the wider region a more exciting place to do business.
What have been some recent highlights for Pulse Investments?
Pulse Investments is extremely pleased to have completed the first of its accommodations projects in 2018. We built a 22-room mini-hotel on Trafalgar Road in New Kingston at The Pulse Center and have started welcoming guests. It is great to have facilities for both business and pleasure travelers which give them options in terms of pricing and services. What is special about this particular hospitality offering is that we are located in the same premises as the Peter Tosh Museum. Furthermore, the Bob Marley Museum is just up the road and Devon House across the street. This means we can expand the real Jamaican cultural creative experience for our guests. The Sensi Medical Cannabis Dispensary is also located at the Pulse Center. Our Pulse Rooms at Trafalgar, as we call it, therefore brings a slightly different product to other hospitality offerings in New Kingston. The first phase of our new 65-suite hotel project in Stony Hill is now nearing completion, and we should be receiving guests by summer 2019. We are also thrilled by the success of our modeling agency business in 2018. Alicia Burke, who is currently one of the top models in the world, is now in the top 50 highest earners in global modeling. Additionally, there is a slew of up-and-coming stars in the international space, as well as top established talent, such as Jeneil Williams and Oraine Barrett. This is important to us because expanded model searches, which unearth new faces, will allow us to also expand our international footprint. Accordingly, we are increasing our presence in the wider Caribbean and launching new searches across Africa and other international territories.
How do you manage your investments?
The key is to ensure that everything we do is sustainable. We are in an age of great innovation and change, where everything that used to be done in a traditional way is now being done in another way using the internet as a base. Second, we look at growth. We are listed on the Jamaican Stock Exchange, which provides us with access to capital to finance growth. Once a company has the finance and can sustain its business, it is just a matter of systematic logical expansion. Additionally, we have key management personnel who have been part of this process for many years. We have a great deal of institutional capacity within our organization.Read More
