What drives the wealth and private advisory industry in the Bahamas, and what is next for this jurisdiction in a turbulent world? We discuss these issues in a webinar.
The work done by advisors and managers in the Bahamas and its international financial center are put under the microscope. The webinar is hosted by the publisher and chief executive of this news service, Stephen Harris, and is produced in conjunction with the Bahamas Financial Services Board.

Themes up for discussion include the benefits and characteristics of the location; the nature and variety of the services offered; strategies for building future clients; what it takes to innovate; moving beyond the digital assets space; investments and the impact of technology; ESG and impact investing. There are also discussions on future trends such as captive insurance, company law changes, and climate finance.
