Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Deltec Bank and Trust Limited – Mrs. Odetta Morton, along with other Deltec International Group (DIG) executives paid a courtesy call on the Attorney General, Senator L. Ryan Pinder on November 18, 2021.
This meeting with the Attorney General is aligned with DIG’s strategic partnership with the government and regulators to promote The Bahamas as the International Financial Centre (IFC) of choice. “We believe that it is important that we share innovative ideas with policymakers if we are to position the financial services industry for growth. DIG is a financial services group with entities providing banking, wealth management, fund administration, insurance, blockchain and fiduciary services to a global clientele. Our record which spans over seven decades speaks for itself and we are proud to have some of the most talented professionals on our team,” said Mrs. Morton.
An area of specific discussion during the meeting was The Bahamas’ efforts to position itself as the hub for financial technology (Fintech), regulatory technology (Regtech), blockchain technology and digital assets. It was noted that the Digital Assets and Registered Exchanges Act, 2020 (DARE Act) continues to attract innovators and entrepreneurs within the technology industry. The Attorney General encouraged the DIG to keep the lines of communication open and to continue to provide feedback on legislative and regulatory proposals put forward by the government.
