The Bahamas Financial Services Board (BFSB) will host Part III of its Competitiveness Conclave Series October 29, with a focus on ethics within the financial services sector and under the theme: “In from the wild – Civilizing the financial services industry through ethical decision making.”

The half-day seminar is being held in collaboration with CFA Society The Bahamas, in the Victoria Room of the downtown British Colonial Hilton Hotel, starting at 10:00 am.


BFSB chief executive officer Aliya Allen says: “Financial services often is seen as the last bastion of the wild, wild west. The crisis of confidence and trust post the economic crises gave us the impetus for recalibration.”

“The Bahamas financial services industry trades on the trust and loyalty of its clients and it is this trust and loyalty that is essential to the reputation of the jurisdiction and to building longevity in our client base.”

Guest presenter will be Dorothy Kelly, director, training & outreach professional conduct program, CFA Institute. Her duties include providing on-going training and education to the Disciplinary Review Committee, which is responsible for enforcing the CFA Institute Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct for more than 250,000 members and candidates.

Referencing the focus on trust and loyalty, president Andrew Strachan of CFA Society The Bahamas says: “Ethical Conduct must be the new normal in financial services. We invite members and, indeed, the sector at large to support this event.”

The seminar will offer 2 CPE credits and 2 CE credits (SER). For more information, contact BFSB at 393-7001.

RBC Royal Bank has appointed Alicia Bain-Thompson and Christina Kenny-Sands to lead financial planning practice in The Bahamas.

Cable & Wireless Communications (CWC) will launch long term evolution (LTE) mobile data services later this year as part of its Christmas marketing campaign in The Bahamas.
