Data Protection and Privacy was one of two pivotal topics presented by Graham Thompson partner Ryan Pinder at the 8th Annual Anti-Money Laundering/Counter Financing of Terrorism Conference held in Jamaica, October 8-10.

In his presentation, Pinder characterized the erosion of client financial privacy as “a multi-faceted strategy of regulatory and compliance reforms designed to institutionalize the demise of fiscal transparency”.

Highlighting both the individual private client market and corporate structuring market, he discussed the impacts on FATCA and CRS.


His presentation highlighted international data protection initiatives, covering issues such as data governance and data sovereignty, and including review of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Pinder also provided a comprehensive outline of The Bahamas’ Data Protection Act and addressed the wider concern of transferring personal data abroad.

Pinder, who is also president of the Bahamas Institute of Financial Services (BIFS), additionally presented to the conference on “Terrorist Financing and Sanctions: The Regional Experience – Focus on Non Profit Organisations”.

The conference was jointly hosted by the Jamaica Bankers Association (JBA) and the Jamaica Institute of Financial Services (JIFS).
