Michael Dunkley is in New York today to participate in Butterfield's IPO listing launch on the New York Stock Exchange.
The official launch, which will include a performance by Gombeys at the NYSE this morning, is considered a milestone and historic occasion for the Island's oldest bank, according to a Cabinet press release.
The Premier, who as an invited guest by Butterfield, is representing the Bermuda Government at the event, will join Butterfield CEO Michael Collins in the symbolic ringing of the opening bell to highlight the Buttefield IPO listing.
Other attendees at the event include Wayne Panton, Minister of Financial Services, Commerce and Environment in the Cayman Islands, members of Butterfield's Board and Executive Management Committee, as well as employees of the Bank and other invited guests.
To celebrate the IPO launch this morning, there will be a performance by the Gombey Evolution Troupe at the NYSE, the featuring of prominent Bermuda branding and Bermuda promotions facilitated by the Bermuda Tourism Authority and NYSE traders clad in Bermuda Shorts.
While in New York, Premier Dunkley will also engage in media outreach with the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg and other financial media outlets.
The Premier, who left the Island yesterday, returns this evening.
