Caribbean Money Market Brokers Limited (CMMB) failed – but you could say it was planned

CL Financial Scandal gets more sordid

The slogan of CL Financial’s CMMB was “Intelligent Investing” but the reality is shown by their return on assets for the five years before their collapse:

Given the very low profits earned during CMMB’s operations, there are two inescapable questions arising – “What is the real reason for the CL Financial group to hold onto this company?” and “What was in it for them?”
