BRADES, Montserrat -- Montserrat-based 15-year-old award-winning entrepreneur and bestselling author Warren Cassell Jr. has recently announced the formation of his privately held investment holding company, The Abella Group LLC.
Cassell, who is in his last year of high school, currently holds an investment portfolio comprising of US and Caribbean debt and equity securities. Through the newly incorporated investment vehicle, he hopes to expand his investment holdings dramatically by prudently leveraging external capital to deploy in a number of globally diverse sectors.
“It is my emphatic belief that working below your potential is criminal behaviour. For me creating success and wealth is a duty and responsibility because it allows me to live a more meaningful and powerful life. I love the world of investing because it teaches me patience, it tests my temperament and it allows me to get access to the place where the wealthy get richer,” the teen tycoon said during the announcement.
Although he is too young to drive, the teenager is not new to the business world. His businesses have served clients from Asia, Africa, Europe, North America and the Caribbean. At the age of eight he started a successful greetings card company, and a few years after he launched a web hosting company called Chupz Business Solutions.
Cassell is now focusing his efforts on investing in established companies that are domiciled in attractive industries, and are supported by growing demand.
“The Abella Group will focus on owning a yield producing portfolio of equity and debt securities, while investing in businesses that are domicile in strong long-term growth industries. Some sectors that we are currently looking at are the financial services and asset management industry.” he explained.
Primarily, The Abella Group will purchase minority stakes in companies listed on the New York Stock Exchange. However, the company looks to take advantage of a number of opportunities on the Jamaica Stock Exchange and Trinidad and Tobago Stock Exchange.
“There are several gems in the Caribbean stock markets. A lot of stocks listed on the regional stock exchanges are significantly undervalued. For example, there is a particular company that I have been looking at on the Jamaica Stock Exchange that has been growing steadily over the last five years. However, despite the impressive growth the stock price has been dormant. In fact, the market price for the company is 50% less than the actual intrinsic value of the company. This simply means that if I purchase a stake in that company, I’ll be getting it at a discount because the price that I will be buying the stock at is 50% less than what it is actually worth. It is no different from buying a house for $300,000 that is really worth $600,000,” Cassell said.
The ambitious young man, who is the author of ‘The Farm of Wisdom’ and ‘Swim or Drown’, hopes to build The Abella Group into a multi-billion dollar holding company over the next 35 years.
He said, “My goal for The Abella Group may be ridiculous, and even on the verge of delusional but I prefer to fall short on an impossible goal than to fall short or even achieve a mediocre one.”

After publishing his first book,The Farm of Wisdom: 25 Unforgettable Tales that Will Ignite a Wiser You!, in September 2013, he started sharing his thoughts on the blog ZapSocial.co. His work is highly focused on the connection between nature and business.
Inspired by the vast expanse of the ocean, Cassell set out to discover why turtles are born on land, why sharks can't breathe without swimming, and how all these creatures work together to create a functional ecosystem. His discoveries are structured to lead the reader to a revelation shared by all great human thinkers.
“The aim of Swim or Drown is to get people to understand that nature holds a lot of lessons,” the budding entrepreneur says. “When I found out that only five percent of our waters have been explored, a light bulb went off. I knew that there had to be pearls of wisdom hidden in the seas.”
As is apparent in all of his work, Cassell believes that once we take the time to pause and observe, our surroundings will reveal large amounts of wisdom to us.
