J&T Bank and Trust Inc – one of the leading private banking and investment companies in Barbados – celebrates its twentieth anniversary this month, with a host of events to mark its milestone year.

“Twenty years in the business is a major achievement. One we are very proud of,” says interim Chief Executive Officer Derrick Cummins, “fitting for a year of celebration”.

The Bank, a legacy of a Canadian trust company, was licensed as a Barbados Offshore Bank on April 23, 1996, and has developed into a local hub of solid expertise and skills in key areas of offshore wealth management and the corporate administration market. While the Bank’s historical client base has been Canada, it has in recent years, expanded into the markets of Latin America, West and Central Europe.

To officially start off the festivities, the Bank will be hosting a Press Launch on Wednesday, April 20th, at 1 p.m. at Invest Barbados. Specially invited guests include chairman of the board of J&T Bank & Trust, Mr Daniel Drahotsky of Czech Republic; General Manager of J&T Mexico; and our Minister of Industry, International Business, Commerce and Small Business Development, the Hon Donville Inniss, will also be in attendance.

“We are very honoured that will be having Minister Inniss present to celebrate with us,” says Cummins. The company plans to continue a yearlong celebration with a church service, a staff anniversary celebration and family fun day, and a cocktail reception.

J&T Bank and Trust Inc is again the proud main sponsor of the BIBA Charity Fun Walk/Run for International Business Week 2016. This year, all proceeds from the Walk go to purchasing equipment for the Eunice Gibson Polyclinic in Warrens.

J&T Bank and Trust Inc. is a subsidiary of J&T Finance Group SE, a world class provider of financing, structuring, banking, asset management and investment banking services.
