It's The Jamaica Stock Exchange & You Podcast, and I am your host, Heneka Watkis-Porter. The Jamaica Stock Exchange and You is brought to you by NCB Capital Markets.

A business financial statement provides a picture of its performance, financial position, and cash flows. Investors, lenders, creditors, and management use these documents to evaluate the business status. What are the most fundamental financial statements? How do we evaluate them? Taking us to school today is Ainsworth McDonald, Junior Research Analyst at NCB Capital Markets.

Some of what we looked at were:

  • What are financial statements; why are they important?
  • What are the basic financial statements that a beginner investor should know?
  • The Balance Sheet and what’s included
  • The Income Statement and what’s included
  • The Cash Flow and what’s included

And lots more.
