Specialist Captive insurance team manages over $1bn in assets for Captive insurers London & Capital’s Caribbean office in Barbados launched, with great response from the international business community

London & Capital, the independently owned global wealth manager, reports further growth amongst their network of Caribbean clients and professional advisers.

The Caribbean has played a significant role in the growth of London & Capital since the company was founded in 1986, and the last 10 years have seen a significant increase in demand from captives in the region. London & Capital’s Institutional division manages over $1bn in assets for captive insurers, based primarily in Barbados, Cayman and Bermuda.

At a recent launch event for the Caribbean office, William Dalziel, Partner and Head of the London & Capital Institutional commented, “Over recent years we have seen that many competitors have been sceptical about the value of servicing the Caribbean market. We feel differently and see a great deal of potential. We are very pleased with our decision to invest in a dedicated office in Barbados”.

Lisl Lewis, Executive Director and Head of the London & Capital Caribbean Office went on to say: “The Caribbean captive and institutional market has grown significantly in importance to London & Capital over the last decade, and we are pleased to demonstrate our commitment to our regional clients by having an office in Barbados.

“The response from the international business communities in Barbados, St Lucia and Cayman has been very encouraging, particularly from insurance managers specializing in the management of captive insurance companies and segregated cell captives. The Barbados office supports our team of investment experts in London, and allows us to offer customized discretionary investment management solutions in our clients’ time zone, on both sides of the Atlantic.”

Lisl Lewis, FCA, was appointed Executive Director and Head of Caribbean in November 2015.

With over 20 years of investment experience, Lisl has held both Board and Senior Executive roles for multiple multinational organisations throughout the region, and has first-hand experience of the unique investment needs of captives, insurance managers and private clients. Lisl’s career includes roles at Ernst & Young in London, Royal Bank of Canada, CXE International Bank, and Southwold Bank & Trust in Barbados. More recently, she headed up her own specialist consulting business in Barbados, which included corporate directorships for captive insurers, international businesses and private banks.

“We continue to have great confidence in the new business opportunities in the international business sector in the Caribbean, and we look forward to continuing to grow the business in the region.”
