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.

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.”
