Representing the BDA was CEO David Hart and independent board member, Andrea Jackson, while senior representatives from Butterfield, Carey Olsen, Conyers, Harbour International, Meritus Trust, and Quadrant Advisors were also in attendance.

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

Bermuda’s attendance at what is referred to as the world’s preeminent gathering of private client lawyers builds on three major in-person high-net-worth services events that returned to Bermuda this summer, the first since 2019.

Along with Butterfield, the BDA co-sponsored a ‘Private Client Exchange Bermuda 2022’ event in June 28-29. This sold-out event brought about 50 of the world’s top lawyers to the St Regis Bermuda Resort.

As part of our commitment to Bermuda’s high net worth services industry, the BDA also sponsored two other in-person international trust and private investors events in June and July. These events not only brought global trust and legal leaders to the Island to discuss important hot topics and best practices but the immediate economic impact of the first two, including lodging, transportation, food and beverage, retail and recreation, was estimated at over half million dollars, and supported around 240 jobs.

New International Tax and Investment Center Research Reveals Link between Tax and Illicit Alcohol Market Size29.11.2022 16:30:00 CET | Press release

The International Tax and Investment Center (ITIC) released new research on illicit alcohol revealing that high tax rates on alcoholic beverages can divert consumers to the illicit alcohol market, which poses a major threat to public health and finances. Experts examined illicit alcohol in Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Malaysia, South Africa, and the United Kingdom to uncover the largest drivers of these illicit markets, which are bad for consumers, communities, and businesses due to their negative social and economic impacts. In alignment with the OECD’s Illicit Trade in High-Risk Sectors report, the research showed that a significant price difference between the licit and illicit alcoholic beverages is one of the biggest drivers; if consumers struggle to afford legal alcoholic beverages, they will turn to cheaper, illicit ones that can be very dangerous and potentially lethal. Some of the severe consequences of the illicit alcohol market can be observed as recently as in the last
