The Bahamas Financial Services Board (BFSB) is pleased to host Policy & Legislation Updates in the cities of London, Geneva and Zurich, on March 26, 27 and 28, respectively. These Policy & Legislation Updates will provide a review of the business environment for financial services in The Bahamas, while separate presentations will update participants on Private Trust Companies, Foundations, SMART Funds, Trusts, and Corporate Structures. Other aspects of the country will be highlighted; for example, the role of public private partnership and lifestyles.

The presentations will be followed by a Cocktail Reception for Briefing participants.

BFSB represents an innovative commitment by the Government and the financial services industry to promote a greater awareness of The Bahamas’ strengths as an International Financial Centre. The strength of BFSB is found in the effective partnership with the Government of The Bahamas and its member firms. This partnership is focused on ensuring that the country’s regulatory and business environment is suitable for both clients and the international stature of The Bahamas as a member of the community of nations.

A broadly based and highly skilled private sector creates a dynamic mix of banking, trust, fund administration, investment advisory and insurance services in The Bahamas. Augmented by professional advisors from legal, accounting, realty, information and communications firms, The Bahamas is a complete international centre.
