Who is Jack Brown from Invest Islands and some of his philosophy: With a deep-rooted passion for sustainable development, nothing brings Jack more satisfaction than helping investors realise their dreams of owning a slice of paradise and ensuring they exit with an excellent return. Jack is particularly proud of the Invest Islands Foundation who work hard to improve the quality of life of the local communities in Lombok including building a school and building a new recycling centre for waste collected from the ocean.
Nothing brings Jack more satisfaction than helping investors realise their dreams of owning a slice of paradise and ensuring they exit with an excellent return. He is brimming with excitement for the future and has plans to partner with leading resort management companies like Six Senses, now part of the Intercontinental group. He aims to accelerate global marketing and therefore increase occupancy much faster, compared to working with local firms, as well as offering a higher level of maintenance, security and ROI for investors.
Islands Invest about investment opportunities in Indonesia : Rating agency Moody’s Investor Service (Moody’s) increased the Republic of Indonesia National Credit Rating (SCR) from Baa3 / Positive Outlook to Stable Baa2 / Outlook on April 13, 2018.. As the country’s vulnerability to external shocks declines; macroeconomic stability and fiscal discipline, coupled with ongoing reforms, suggest that policy effectiveness is improving. Standard & Poor’s credit rating for Indonesia stands at BB+ with a positive outlook. Fitch’s credit rating for Indonesia was last reported at BBB- with a positive outlook.
Indonesia is the fourth most populated country in the world and the largest economy in Southeast Asia with a 2014 nominal GDP of $888.6 billion. With strong economic growth and a young population, many economists have argued that it should be added to the so-called BRIC economies as an up-and-coming emerging market. Those looking to invest in Indonesia should start with the Jakarta Composite Index (JCI). While the rest of the world was in a recession between 2009 and 2012, the country’s primary equity index jumped from a low of around 1140 to a high of around 4100. And it was one of the only emerging markets in the world to come out of 2011 with any real economic growth.
“Operating across the Asia Pacific region, Invest Islands is a land brokerage company based in Lombok Indonesia, with strategic offices in Hong Kong under Asian Island Group. I currently oversee all of the aspects of the Asian Island Group. I also travel to the development sites and visit the Invest Islands Foundation Charity projects. Additionally, I frequently travel to the plantation field at the foot of Mount Rinjani that supplies fresh fruits and vegetables to the Invest Islands Resort in Torok Bay.”
Few foreign investors know that Indonesia’s economy has shown the most stable growth of any economy globally since the second world war; the consuming middle class of Indonesia is set to grow by 90 million people over the next 12 years; there are now 103 million millennials born between 1975 and 1998; or that it is now the largest digital economy of South East Asia. The timing for (impact) investing in Indonesia could not be better than it is today.
