CEO of Sagicor Real Estate X Fund Limited, Rohan Miller, noted the acquisition of the Hilton Rose Hall and Spa in Montego Bay and the Doubletree by Hilton at the entrance of Universal Orlando, in Florida.

Sagicor Real Estate X Fund is the largest real estate company listed on the Jamaica Stock Exchange.

It is the only company that allows Jamaicans to invest directly in the real estate market and the tourism market.
