Invest Barbados (IB), a longstanding partner of the STEP Barbados chapter, will be the Presenting Sponsor for the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) CC18 Caribbean Conference, which will be held from May 7 – 9, at the Hilton Barbados Resort.

STEP is the internationally recognised professional association for practitioners in the industry, who deal with family inheritance and succession planning. Members of the association include accountants, lawyers, financial planners and trust specialists, among others. The Caribbean arm of STEP focuses mainly on issues relating to Caribbean International Financial Centres.  

Returning to Barbados after eight years, the event themed, “Fast Forward: Future Thinking”, will bring together a number of professionals in the industry to discuss with their peers the latest industry trends, among other areas of interest.  In addition to the conference, there will be several networking events planned for attendees.

Barbados’ Minister of Industry, International Business, Commerce and Small Business Development, the Hon. Donville Inniss will deliver brief remarks on the first day of the conference, while several keynote speakers from across the globe will present on a range of topics over the two and a half days.  Topics will include: Wealth Planning for a Diverse Family; Survival After De-risking; Fake News, Scandals & Political Uncertainty; The Cosmopolitan Effects of Trusts; Family Offices – What’s Hot?; and Making a Will Won’t Kill You.


IB’s representatives will be on hand to discuss the various wealth management solutions that are available in Barbados. Visit them in the exhibit hall to learn more about the Barbados value proposition and how they can assist.
