Celebrating 45 Years of Financial Freedom

We’ve Helped Jamaicans Build Wealth For 45 Years.

1977
Rita Humphries Lewin became Jamaica’s first female stock-broker when she opened our very first branch with $10,000.
1993
Barita Unit Trusts Management Company Limited was formed. This entity launched our first pooled fund, the Barita Capital Growth Fund that same year.
1995
Rita was named Chairman of the Jamaica Stock Exchange for a second time. She held that position for the next 5 years.
2001
After continued growth, we needed additional space and acquired a second building in Kingston.
2002
Sustained growth led to the opening of our Mandeville branch.
2005
Barita's Montego Bay branch was opened.
2009
Barita Investments Limited & Barita Unit Trusts merged, launching Barita Online to give clients account access via the internet.
2011
Barita celebrated the milestone of being listed on the Jamaica Stock Exchange on January 14th.
2018
We were acquired by Cornerstone Investment Holdings Limited, re-energizing our vision and accelerating our progress.
2019
Total Funds rose to $180 B. We became number 1 on the JSE with returns of 611%. We launched our Private Wealth Division, our online application platform BOSS, and had two oversubscribed rights issues totalling $9 B.
2020
Barita weathered the onset of the pandemic with strategy and success. With funds totalling J$13.5 B, we achieved the largest equity raise by a private sector company, and the largest APO ever listed on the JSE.
2021
Our second APO raised J$ 10.8 B in equity earmarked for developing our alternative investments platform. We kept our position as the third largest company listed on the main market of the JSE, with a 48.91% increase in year end market capitalization of J$78.70 billion.
2022
We completed a landmark transaction to acquire three real estate services companies in the United States, Robert Slack Homes LLC, Florida Funding LLC, and Florida Tile LLC. We’re 45 years and going strong without posting a single loss.

Barita Investments Limited has been changing the game since 1977. Over the last 45 years, Barita now stands $300 Billion strong recording zero losses posted. As long as we’re here, we’re going to keep changing the game and moving the financial revolution forward. 

This is our Legacy; our Growth Story.
