Butterfield Bank (Bahamas) Limited was established in 2003 with the acquisition and merger of two noted and reputable financial service providers in The Bahamas. The Bank is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Bank of N.T. Butterfield & Son Limited, Bermuda.

Our focus is to offer clients a first class service, creating solutions tailored to their individual global wealth management needs within our services of Banking, Fiduciary, Investments, Custody and Lending. Institutional clients benefit from our extensive experience in Third Party Fund Administration and Administered Banking.

Professional, well-trained individuals work as a team so as to understand, address and manage client needs and relationships. Key to our success is our recognition that quality and consistency of service are primary considerations in a client�s choice of a Private Bank. In an increasingly automated world, we try whenever possible to meet clients and their advisors in person, thereby enhancing our knowledge and understanding of their current and future requirements.

The Bank is licensed and regulated by The Central Bank of The Bahamas and Securities Commission of The Bahamas pursuant to the Banks and Trust Companies Regulation Act, 2000 and Securities Industry Act, 1999 respectively.

Relationship Management will be an important part of your decision process in employing a fiduciary service provider. Recognizing this we employ a number of experienced individuals, from a range of disciplines, in key client relationship roles.
