BAHAMAS INVESTOR FEATURES SOL KERZNER’S ATLANTIS EMPIRE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Nassau, January 4, 2008) – There are as many reasons to choose The Bahamas for investment and leisure as there are grains of sand on the islands’ pristine beaches, says the January 2008 issue of The Bahamas Investor. The Bahamas Investor, which promotes the financial industry, features Sol Kerzner and his Atlantis resort on its front cover and tells how the South African-born accountant-turned-entrepreneur parlayed his vision of a fairytale vacation resort into a wonderous reality that spans continents.
Published by Etienne Dupuch Jr Publications Ltd, The Bahamas Investor is a biannual magazine with a controlled circulation serving the informational needs of foreign investors and wealth management practitioners worldwide. Since its debut in January 2006, The Bahamas Investor has established itself as the pre-eminent news and information resource on living, investing and transacting business in The Bahamas. Each issue presents stories about international and local business figures who are realizing their entrepreneurial dreams in The Bahamas, as well as key issues and trends facing today’s investment world.
Here are some of the articles in this issue:
• For working women in The Bahamas, the glass ceiling is finally cracking. Senior women executives are chipping away at perceived limitations in an industry once dominated by men. In this issue, The Bahamas Investor presents stories of four prominent Bahamian women – Patricia Hermanns, Family Guardian president and CEO; Margaret A Butler, Citigroup country officer; Suzanne Black, managing director of Black & Associates Ltd; and Maria Ferere, president and director of FT Consultants Ltd.
• Everyone loves The Bahamas, but many do not know all of the reasons why it is the perfect place to live, work and invest. Simon Townend, partner at the Nassau arm of KPMG, offers a compelling case why The Bahamas is even better than you think–for both business and pleasure.
• With an unusually high concentration of ultra-high-net-worth individuals among its inhabitants, Latin America may well become the world’s next hot investment market. After witnessing a decade of comparatively stable growth in their respective countries, Latin American investors are now seeking a safe haven for their assets–and finding it in The Bahamas.
• The advantages of philanthropy are many, but managing these efforts can be challenging. Christian Coquoz, of Lombard Odier Darier Hentsch Private Bank &?Trust, explains the rules governing charitable trusts and why The Bahamas, a common-law jurisdiction, is a perfect location to set up and manage philanthropic operations.
All of this, plus an update of the magazine’s acclaimed Investor’s Resource Guide is now available. This section provides specific information on topics such as setting up trusts, starting a business, offshore investment products and the rules governing residency.
