Hamilton, Bermuda, May 2, 2016—BDA CEO Ross Webber delivered the keynote speech to a Legal Week Offshore Investment Forum in London recently. We used this event as another timely opportunity to describe Bermuda’s global value and underscore our status among top-tier jurisdictions. The theme of the Forum, which attracted an audience of UK lawyers, asset managers, and compliance and reporting professionals, was, “Funds in flux: the changing dynamic of the offshore world.” The speech, which kicked off an afternoon of fruitful panel discussions at the event, was titled:
A World Apart: Separating Fact from Fiction post-Panama Papers
The need for top-tier jurisdictions to differentiate themselves from less scrupulous domiciles has never been more critical. How blue-chip international financial centres need to demonstrate their global value, rise to the challenge of ever-increasing regulation—and combat the current tsunami of misinformation.
