New issue of The Bahamas Investor published.
“There is perhaps no sector that is evolving more rapidly than financial services,” says Michele Thompson, country managing partner at EY Bahamas in the newest edition of The Bahamas Investor. Thompson highlights the strength and versatility of the archipelago’s financial services sector and adds that EY Bahamas is “on a fast track to growth.”
Subject of this issue’s Executive Focus section, Thompson shares her road to success, working her way up the ranks to become one of the most respected names in The Bahamas’ accountancy field. “Hopefully my example has paved the way for other women, not only in The Bahamas, but also more broadly across the region, to strive to be whatever they want to be,” she says.
The Bahamas Investor–published by Dupuch Publications –is a bi-annual publication packed full of insightful commentary, in-depth interviews and profiles and expert opinion covering all investor-related business and financial news from The Bahamas. With more than 100 pages of original and contributed content, The Bahamas Investor is a vital tool for promoting the nation to anyone looking to work, live, invest and do business in the jurisdiction.
As The Bahamas moves to adopt the Common Reporting Standard (CRS), it is renewing its commitment to maintaining best practices and adhering to international standards, writes Tanya McCartney CEO of the Bahamas Financial Services Board in the Wealth Management section. Sharing the country’s approach to CRS, McCartney says: “Industry and government are collaborating on the full implementation of CRS. Through public and private sector collaboration, The Bahamas can be repositioned to compete for long-term growth and sustainability.”
Also in the Wealth Management section of this issue is an interview with EFG Bahamas managing director Ian Comins who is spearheading efforts to restructure operations in The Bahamas following the Swiss bank’s acquisition of BSI, and insight on the Canadian market from Canadian lawyer Stephen Solomon who believes “a service-oriented approach with an emphasis on providing information and support will help The Bahamas’ financial sector retain Canadian clients.”
