(Nassau, THE BAHAMAS – July 12, 2012) – Authoritative, and easy to read, the newly released The Bahamas Investor magazine contains something for everyone – from Bahamian professionals to foreign investors and wealth managers.
With the needs and wants of foreign investors and wealth management practitioners at the top of its editorial agenda, the biannual magazine focuses on offshore wealth management strategies, opportunities for direct investment and the lifestyle advantages available in The Bahamas.
Produced by Etienne Dupuch Jr Publications, The Bahamas Investor has the perfect mix of industry analysis and human interest.
A great promotional tool for the government and the private sector, The Bahamas Investor is solely focused on The Bahamas, its advantages and opportunities in the fields of investment and financial services.
This issue’s cover story shines the spotlight on one of the upcoming stars of financial services in The Bahamas, Aliya Allen–the newly appointed managing director and chief executive officer of the Bahamas Financial Services Board (BFSB). Assuming the position at the beginning of the year, the 34-year-old is charged with promoting the nation’s second largest industry as the offshore financial jurisdiction of choice. Given the competitive environment, it’s a formidable task, but Allen says she is prepared to put in the “legwork” needed to raise the jurisdiction’s visibility on the international stage.
Other key interviews in this issue include question and answer sessions with UBS’ Wealth Management division chief executive officer Jürg Zeltner and Michele Fields, the newly appointed superintendent of the Insurance Commission of The Bahamas, as well as a profile of Cheryl Bazard, founding president of the Bahamas Association of Compliance Officers (BACO).
Heading the Investment section of this issue is the Bimini Bay Resort and Marina, which is poised to expand further with the groundbreaking of the neighbouring luxury residential community Rockwell Island Beach Resorts.
The developer behind Bimini’s north island renaissance is RAV Bahamas, which has joined forces with international property management company RockResorts.
RockResorts, a subsidiary of Vail Resorts Inc (NYSE: MTN), was originally created in 1956 by Laurance Rockefeller. The brand now includes 27 properties and hotels spanning six countries. With such resort management expertise backing the project, Rockwell Island Beach Resorts could well help put Bimini on the map as a premier destination for high-end luxury island living.
This issue also carries a special real estate supplement, Island Living, which has a wealth of information for investors looking to buy property in the island paradise and a 32-page Legal Directory–a vital resource for anyone doing business in the jurisdiction. There is also a special section on Grand Bahama in this issue.
The Bahamas Investor is produced by Etienne Dupuch Jr Publications Ltd–the leading publisher of business and tourism information in The Bahamas.
