Lombard Odier & Cie (Bahamas) Ltd marked a major milestone this year, celebrating 40 years of business in The Bahamas.

In 1979, the Geneva-based bank saw potential in the local market and began its operations in Nassau bringing the same values, expertise and technology from its head office to service clients in the jurisdiction.


Today, the company’s Nassau office is a regional hub that services Panama, Uruguay and Bermuda, powered by a team of 30 professionals.

To celebrate the anniversary, 200 guests including clients, industry partners and employees attended an exclusive event held on November 21, 2019 at Sapodilla Estate.

On hand for the celebration was Christophe Hentsch, managing partner at Lombard Odier Group and chairman of the Bahamas board. Hentsch’s father set up the local office 40 years ago.

Marc Lopez, limited partner and head of Private Client Services, LO Group, and Renaud Vielfaure, managing director, local office, were also in attendance.

The company also commemorated this milestone event by giving back to the Bahamian community, presenting a cheque to the Grand Bahama Children’s Home.

The Bahamas has become the latest country of the Caribbean Community to ensure trade continuity with the UK following on from the ten-year-old economic partnership agreement signed between the Caribbean Forum and the European Union.

The Bahamas has been re-elected to the Council of the International Maritime Organization at its 31st Assembly, taking place in London this week.
