The Association of International Banks and Trust Companies in The Bahamas (AIBT) is set to host The Nassau Conference on June 15.

British Colonial HiltonPresenting an information-packed agenda, this year’s Nassau Conference will take place at the Colonial Hilton Hotel and will address topics pertinent to the financial services industry.

AIBT chairman David Thain“The conference is aimed at local professionals in financial services,” says David Thain, AIBT chairman. “The idea is to provide a low-cost, top-quality conference right here in Nassau. You get a day’s intensive immersion in the issues that are the most pressing for the industry in The Bahamas.”

This year, the banking organization has partnered with other industry associations such as The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP), Bahamas Association of Compliance Officers (BACO) and The Bahamas Institute of Chartered Accounts (BICA).


The day’s agenda presents a broad spectrum of topics relevant to financial services providers, including sessions on compliance issues, emerging markets, as well as SMART Funds and trusts.

“We tried to make the event topical, but not extremely technical,” adds Thain. “The conference offers more of an overview of the industry in The Bahamas; what you need to know now and what we can expect going forward.”

The event has attracted top international speakers, such as tax and trust lawyer Simon Beck of Baker & McKenzie, as well as local experts such as Brian Moree, partner with McKinney, Bancroft & Hughes, and Stanislaw Bereza, inspector of banks at The Central Bank of The Bahamas.

Thain promises a rewarding and enjoyable day for attendees, but adds that it will be quite intensive. “There’s a lot to get in, so we will be having a working lunch to use our time effectively.”

At press time, there were around 150 attendees signed up for the day.
