The former governor of the Central Bank of Barbados was on the island to meet fellow members of the Bermuda Financial Policy Council.

DeLisle Worrell was recently appointed to the council, which was created to advise on the development of Bermuda’s financial stability framework.

The financial climate and other key socio-economic areas of concern were up for discussion at last Wednesday’s meeting, which took place at the Bermuda Monetary Authority.

Dr Worrell was welcomed to Bermuda by David Burt, the Premier.

Members of the council include Mr Burt, Sir Andrew Large, the former deputy governor of the Bank of England and Jeremy Cox, CEO of the Bermuda Monetary Authority.

Other members are Michael Butt, chairman of Axis Capital Holdings, Dame Amelia Fawcett, chairwoman of the Hedge Fund Standards Board, and Gil Tucker, former Bermuda managing partner of EY, who is on the board of HSBC Bermuda.

The council is supported by the Ministry of Finance and the BMA.
