New products, new developments earn Bahamas top marks from investors
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Nassau, December 28, 2006) – New product legislation, a robust economy and a surge of spectacular new developments are securing The Bahamas’ pole position as a haven for international investment. Acclaimed as the top international financial centre in the Americas just one year ago, The Bahamas has continued to grow its economy and draw new business throughout 2006, and you can read about the reasons behind this and the many investment opportunities available in the latest issue of The Bahamas Investor (www.thebahamasinvestor.com).
Published by Nassau-based Etienne Dupuch Jr Publications Ltd, The Bahamas Investor is a biannual magazine designed to serve the growing interest and information needs of foreign investors and wealth management practitioners worldwide. Since its debut in January 2006, The Bahamas Investor has established itself as the preeminent news and information resource on living, investing and transacting business in The Bahamas. In each issue, you’ll find intriguing stories about international business figures who are living their entrepreneurial dreams in The Bahamas, key issues and trends facing today’s investment world and developments that are shaping the future of the islands.
Here are just a few of the features you can look forward to in the January – June 2007 issue:
* Prominent Bahamian attorney Brian Moree has helped shape the nation’s top-rated financial services industry through his contributions to the fields of law and finance. Now this outspoken industry leader weighs in on the future of the industry and the role he plans to play.
* When it debuted in the 1980s, the Commodore 64 achieved instant popularity and secured its place in computer history. Years later, the product’s legendary inventor, Kit Spencer, chose The Bahamas as his home base for work and play—and recommends that others do so as well.
* If the Atlantis Resort’s $25,000/night Bridge Suite is booked, affluent visitors might want to consider renting out one of The Bahamas’ many luxury homes instead. The Bahamas Investor takes you on a tour through some of the islands’ most celebrated and opulent rental properties that provide celebrities and monied guests with all of the comforts of home.
* Already an innovator with SMART fund and foundations legislation, The Bahamas will soon have a new product to add to its slate of investment options. Former Bahamas Financial Services Board chair Bruno Roberts outlines the rules surrounding Private Trust Company legislation and how it stands to benefit international investors.
All of this, plus the highly acclaimed and newly revised Investor’s Resource Guide, which provides specific information on such topics as setting up trusts, starting a business, offshore investment products and the rules surrounding residency, can be found in our print edition, as well as online at www.thebahamasinvestor.com. Also available on the web is an archive of previous issues, where you can find previously published stories of interest. Users with an RSS reader on their computer can arrange to have the latest articles from the magazine sent to them automatically by clicking on the orange RSS icon on the website.
