British Virgin Islands: Hands On Your Buzzers – BVI Funds Conference
Last Updated: 30 June 2016

Our BVI funds team was out in full force today at a conference we hosted for the BVI financial services community.

As a new way to involve our audience, we put the power in the people and invited our attendees to submit questions for us to answer in a wheel of fortune-style quiz.

When the submissions started rolling in, they ranged from specific and technical points on CRS, FATCA and AML (anti-money laundering) legislation in the BVI to general questions on the state of the funds industry – and some more controversial questions about the Panama Papers. There were moments when we wondered whether we had made the right decision in asking for the views of the public – a feeling that may well have echoed the sentiments of David Cameron on this historic Brexit vote day.

With Phil as quiz master, we played for points and competed for a $500 award from Harneys to one of four local charities. Between us, we managed to tackle the questions and, I hope, keep the attention of the audience. Our regulatory expert, Mirza, dazzled the floor with a few of his spectacularly technical responses. I am happy to report that, despite lagging behind in the first rounds, I came through at the end and won the cash prize which we donated to the HIV and AIDS foundation in the BVI.
