Trinidad and Tobago: World Offshore Banks Directory Now Number 1 on Five Top Search Engines
Last Updated: 20 August 2002, a directory of offshore banks and service providers around the world, now appears at number one on five of the major search engines.

After just one (1) year and seven (7) months, the directory appears at the top spot on Google, Yahoo, America Online, and Netscape when the keywords "offshore banks" are used.

According to officials the goal of the website is to bring together offshore banking clients with providers, to provide information, news and updated headlines so customers can make informed decisions before they purchase any offshore products.

Gerald Garcia, CEO of the company says, "our website have gone through a lot of changes since it was first launched. We continue to monitor and institute the request of visitors on a daily basis.

This policy seems to be working well because our traffic has increased tenfold and now we have these number one rankings."

Chad Sheppard, manager of a offshore bank in Netherlands Antilles says he visits the site every day to keep abreast of the latest developments in the offshore market. Another visitors Ainlsey Clarke says he also visits the site every day to make informed decisions. Brad Ocat from Miami, an investment banker says " This is a complete site and it is very easy to browse, I love it."

But it's not all easy work says Garcia. " I work for almost 18 hours a day making sure the site is working properly, making sure the information is up to date. Today you might have a bank operating and tomorrow the license is revoked. We have to keep tracking the latest developments and hope we get it correct." he contended.

Hits to the site have increased dramatically from the last three months. "In march we were getting an average of ninety thousand (90,000) hits per month now we are doing over four hundred thousand (450,000) and rising, says Garcia. "I know this is due in part to the #1 rankings we now have. More people will see us now," he concludes.

Garcia says, "We follow changing trends every day. For example we see Cayman Islands, Isle of Man, Bahamas, Jersey, Montenegro, Switzerland, Antigua/Barbuda and The Channel Islands among the most visited pages in the last 26 days. Previous to that four of those in the group appeared in the middle to bottom part of the top ten.

All in all we think we provide a great service. Most of the time we answer queries for free but always advise visitors to seek more information before making decisions." he concluded.
