Offshore Certification Programme – opinions

As one could expect, the launch of the first BVI offshore certification programme for offshore corporate administration is generally taken with optimism and delight.

Founding Chairman of the ICSA BVI Group and an Associate at Conyers Dill & Pearman, Mr. Gareth Thomas (manages incorporation and administration of the offshore companies in another offshore jurisdiction - Anguilla) considers that there is a strategic fit between the programme and the financial services sector and that the programme has already become the standard of offshore industry in the BVI.

Senior Administrative Officer at the Financial Services Institute, Ms. Diana Maduro (also member of the BVI FSC Board of Appeal) appreciated the opportunity to provide the offshore financial services industry with relevant training. Chief Operating Officer of the BVI International Finance Centre, Mr. Humphry Leue saw this as essential development to enhance advancement opportunities for offshore finance professionals in the BVI.
