BFSB Targets Asia
The Bahamas Financial Services Board (BFSB) last night said it was spearheading a business development mission to Asia, starting on October 24 with stops in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore.
“The Asian market, with its growing influence and importance to global economic growth, increasingly will play a greater role in the development of financial centres in the Americas,” said Paul Winder, BFSB’s chairman.
“Our strategic plan for the sector recognises that the Bahamas must be an active player in Asia, and therefore it incorporates steps to grow business from this region.”
In Hong Kong on October 24 and 25, under the banner Bahamas Landfall: Destination Hong Kong, breakfast and luncheon presentations have been scheduled for intermediaries and business leaders. These will focus on the Bahamian financial services industry’s legal and regulatory regime, including private wealth and asset management products and services, inclusive of investment funds.china, investing
