The island’s private wealth industry professionals have been returning from Lake Como, Italy where they were promoting Bermuda as a premier domicile for high-net-worth services to the world’s private client lawyers.

The group included Bermuda Business Development Agency CEO David Hart and independent board member, Andrea Jackson, while senior representatives from Butterfield Bank, Carey Olsen, Conyers, Harbour International, Meritus Trust, and Quadrant Advisors were also in attendance.

Mr Hart said the agency’s main purpose at the International Private Client Forum, which was held in association with Butterfield, was to share the message of Bermuda's safety and stability as a blue-chip jurisdiction for attracting and welcoming foreign direct investment.

He said: “There is a larger Bermuda delegation here beyond the BDA, including leading professionals in our legal, banking and trust communities, all of whom have substantial experience in advising high net worth individuals and families and are at the forefront of the private wealth industry.”

Michael Neff, Butterfield’s managing director of Bermuda and International Wealth, welcomed delegates to the three-day forum of panel discussions, roundtables and workshops.

Carey Olsen Bermuda partner and head of the Bermuda disputes team, Keith Robinson, spoke on a panel session entitled Drafting Carefully: Planning Lessons Learned from Recent Cases and Conyers director Scott Pearman joined a roundtable discussion entitled Criminal Enforcement: Our Shifting Role.
