Bermuda Report- Captive Review 2015
June 11, 2015
"Doing the Simple Things Well" Q&A with CEO Peter Horton
Bermuda Commercial Bank CEO, Peter Horton, outlines BCB's plans to launch a captive banking platform.
Captive Review (CR): What should a captive owner look for in a banking partner and what makes BCB stand out in this regard?
Peter Horton (PH): To us the most essential feature of a good banking partner is the business relationship between the banker and its clientele. It’s about having a detailed understanding of each other’s needs and using that knowledge to work together effectively to look after the captive. We are investing signiﬁcantly in building a strong relationship-focused offering, which demands the right people with the right training to create the right product.
Strong relationships and exemplary service are our top priority. Next is an emphasis on ease of transaction. Relatively basic issues, such as opening a bank account in a timely manner, are often overlooked.
It is important to emphasise BCB’s commitment to the captive sector. We have found that certain business sectors are not receiving the committed relationship they require from banks globally. We at BCB, on the other hand, are determined to develop and introduce a strong proposition to the captive space in Bermuda.
