It was an uber chic affair when Sagicor’s premium clients were invited to an evening of drinks, laughter and celebration. Scores of socialites clad in well-tailored business attire waltzed into the beautifully decorated Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel for the grand occasion. The pool deck was nicely furnished with modern and snazzy moveables for mingling and cocktails.

These premium clients were ushered into a suite where a live band played sweet background music while hors d’oeuvres were served.

The Jamaica Public Service Company, with help from Sagicor Investments, raised $22 billion to cover half its debt.
