The ‘grandfather’ of international financial services –
Global Bank of Commerce

As the oldest international financial services institution in the country, it’s little surprise that Global Bank of Commerce is considered the ‘grandfather’ of the sector. Since opening for business in 1983, the locally-owned bank has earned a solid reputation as one to trust – and one to grow with.

It offers its clients – who are based across the region, Latin America, Europe and Asia – attractive interest bearing accounts for fixed deposits in multiple currencies; private banking services; corporate and trust services; pension and fund management; credit and debit cards; and internet banking.  Global has been a pioneer in establishing best banking practices in the Caribbean – no mean feat in an ever-evolving industry. Its team of friendly, confidential and efficient staff is headed by long-standing chairman and CEO Brian Stuart-Young.

“April 2013 marked our 30th anniversary in business. In financial services the age of an institution tells much about its stability and we are pleased to have come of age,” Mr Stuart-Young said. “We pride ourselves on maintaining excellent, personalised client relationships combined with modern and technologically advanced products and services. We maintain excellent correspondent banking relationships and as a member of SWIFT can transact worldwide financial transfers.” The future is bright for Global as it continues to expand its services to include new and exciting technology enabling customers to conduct international transactions safely, efficiently and effectively. “We have invested in a modern payment transaction platform that we believe will play a significant role in introducing multi-channel payment services in the Caribbean.”

Mr Stuart-Young added: “Our company tagline is ‘managing your wealth across the globe, generation by generation’. This states, in a nutshell, what our company does while emphasising our trustworthy reputation garnered by the personalised, family-like way we treat our customers.”
