London & Capital has opened an office in Barbados to provide further support and services to its network of Caribbean clients and their professional advisers.
Effective 2 November, London & Capital appointed Lisl Lewis as executive director for the Caribbean. The new office will be fully operational by the end of the year.
Lewis has held both board and senior executive roles for multiple multinational organisations throughout the Caribbean, and has first-hand experience of the investment needs of captives, insurance managers and private clients.
She has held roles at Ernst & Young in London, Royal Bank of Canada, CXE International Bank, and Southwold Bank & Trust in Barbados.
Most recently, she headed up her own specialist consulting business in Barbados, which included corporate directorships for captive insurers, international businesses and private banks.
William Dalziel, partner and head of the institutional division at London & Capital, said: “We’re pleased to have found in Lewis an experienced and respected local expert who shares the same values and ethos as London & Capital. She is an excellent addition to our institutional team and I am delighted to have her on board as we continue to develop our business in the region.”
“[Her] appointment will help ensure that we maintain and enhance our high standards of service in the Caribbean while we continue to grow in Europe.”
London & Capital’s institutional division now manages more than $1 billion in assets for captive insurers, based primarily in Barbados, the Cayman Islands and Bermuda.
