The massive infrastructure redevelopment project at Lynden Pindling International Airport takes centre stage as the new issue of The Bahamas Investor magazine looks at key projects and initiatives that are shaping the jurisdiction. Out now, the July edition is crammed with insightful features and expert commentary, as well as an Island Living supplement and Legal Directory.

The July-December 2011 issue of The Bahamas Investor is now out. Weighing in at 138 pages, this issue is the biggest yet. Offering insight and information for high-net-worth individuals and financial services providers, The Bahamas Investor, produced by Etienne Dupuch Jr Publications Ltd, is the jurisdiction’s premier investing and wealth management publication.

The new issue features on the cover the chief executive officer of Nassau Airport Development Co, Stewart Steeves, to mark the opening of the new state-of-the-art US Departures Terminal at Lynden Pindling International Airport.

Speaking on the multi-million-dollar airport-wide redevelopment Steeves believes that “the customer experience–for the size and type of facility–is becoming the best in the region, if not the world.”

With Stage Two already underway, the complete overhaul of the international facility is due to be completed by fall 2013.

Other features in the July-December issue include an in-depth look at emerging markets in Latin America. The LATAM market represents a golden opportunity for financial services providers to tap into a rapidly growing demographic of high-net-worth individuals looking for wealth management in an offshore environment. With a population of 190 million, the potential cash cow of course is Brazil, but other nations too, such as Peru, Chile, Argentina and Colombia have swelling ranks of wealthy investors.

A more established market is Canada. As a trade partner and investor, the fellow commonwealth nation has proved to be a good friend over the past few decades, with deep commercial ties in banking, insurance and property development. The lead feature in the Investing section of the July issue looks at how efforts are continuing to increase trade and foreign direct investment from our neighbour in the north.

In the Lifestyle feature of the new issue we talk to world-record breaking freediver William Trubridge. The native New Zealander has travelled halfway around the world to make his home in Long Island, site of the world’s deepest blue hole and a perfect environment for his sport. He hopes his diving and yoga academy will help put the sleepy Family Island on the map.

Other stories in the issue include a feature on developing client relationships, estate planning for high-net-worth individuals and developments in the business and financial services arenas.

The Island Living supplement has a wealth of information for investors looking to buy property in the island paradise and the 32-page Legal Directory is a vital resource for anyone doing business in the jurisdiction.

The Bahamas Investor is produced by Etienne Dupuch Jr Publications Ltd–the leading publisher of business and tourism information in The Bahamas. Other publications produced by Etienne Dupuch Jr Publications Ltd include the Bahamas Handbook, Welcome Bahamas, What-to-do, Bahamas Trailblazer Maps and the Dining & Entertainment Guide.

The Family Island's economy has been bolstered by the second-home market, but still needs investment in infrastructure, according to Chamber of Commerce president. Tourism and real estate offer keys to further growth of the island.

The Bahamas will be represented at a variety of conferences towards the end of the year, including trips to Brazil and Asia. The Bahamas Financial Services Board is assembling a high-level delegation to travel to China, Hong Kong and Singapore.
