A British Virgin Islands (BVI) delegation recently attended the Hedge Funds World Conference and the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners’ (STEP) ‘Opportunities for the Flow of New Wealth Conference’ in Dubai.

At both meetings, the delegation spoke about the advantages of Middle Eastern investors and businesses doing business with the BVI.  Ms. Elise Donovan, a BVI delegation member and Executive Director of the BVI International Finance Centre, explained that BVI financial services are “popular in the Middle East for wealth management, investing, structuring ownership and control, and for planning for the succession of assets.”  The BVI International Finance Centre seeks to enhance and promote the Territory’s reputation as a globally integrated and fiscally responsible financial services center.
