BDA Renews Latin American Outreach – Continues Focus on High-Net-Worth Services Industry

Hamilton, Bermuda, February 13, 2023 — The Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA) has successfully organised Bermuda’s first business development mission to Latin America since 2019.

The Hon. Jason Hayward, JP, MP, Minister of Economy & Labour, represented Bermuda’s Government at the ‘Private Client Forum Americas 2023’ in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico from February 12-14.

Minister Hayward said, “At a BDA-sponsored Bermuda Breakfast this morning, we reminded a select grouping of top international lawyers about the Island’s key high-net-worth services attributes, as well as our Economic Investment Certificate (EIC). I am confident that Bermuda’s economy will receive long-term benefits from this renewed contact with the Latin American market. I congratulate the BDA on organising another successful business development mission.”

David Hart, CEO, BDA said, “The BDA tells the Bermuda story best to potential business makers overseas when we are joined arm-in-arm with our public sector and industry stakeholders. So along with the Minister, I also thank Stephanie Bernard, Counsel, Carey Olsen, Trusts and Private Wealth; Gina Pereira, Managing Director – Client & Fiduciary Stewardship, Meritus; Anna Bruce- Smith, Director, Conyers; and Satjivan Aujla, Associate, Conyers for taking time away from their families to help promote Bermuda.”

Supporting the high-net-worth services industry is one of the BDA’s key strategic priorities and this Latin American mission follows Bermuda’s successful presence at an International Private Client Forum in Lake Como, Italy in November 2022.

The BDA also played an important role in the return of three major in-person high-net-worth services events to Bermuda last summer, the first since 2019.

In addition to overseas business development missions and providing financial support to important in-person events in Bermuda, the BDA assists this well-established sector via monthly trust and private client advisory group meetings.
