Our speaker today was Amy Betancur. She was born in Colombia and raised in New York. She is the youngest of 11 siblings; eight sisters and two brothers! She has lived in Miami since 1986. Amy’s most important accomplishment was raising her two daughters.
Amy holds a Paralegal degree from Rollins College. She has been a banker for over 25 years. She has experience in international and domestic banking, and what she most enjoys about her career is dealing with people and helping them achieve their goals and dreams.
As Vice President of EverBank, she manages the Coral Gables Branch and is responsible for overall business development in the Miami-Dade County market.
Amy explained that EverBank is offering the new 3-year MarketSafe BRICS CD now through October 15, 2014, with currencies from the major emerging market economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (the BRICS nations). Collectively, the BRICS nations account for nearly 40% of the world population and approximately 18% of the world economy. The BRICS Development Bank was created in July 2014 to enable even faster growth of their respective economies and a foundation for growth. The investment is safe, because if the dollar outperforms the currency indices, you’ll still get back all of your deposited principal upon CD maturity.
Thanks Amy for all the useful information!
