Premium Partner - Bermuda Business Development Agency

Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA) encourages direct investment and helps companies start up, relocate or expand their business in Bermuda. An independent, public-private unit, BDA connects prospective business to industry professionals, regulatory officials, and key contacts in the Bermuda government to facilitate domicile decisions.

Bermuda’s wealth of industry expertise and innovation coupled with world-respected regulation and a 400-year-old British legal system have made the island a top-tier international financial centre. The island’s convenient mid-Atlantic location between the Europe and North American markets is attractive to corporations, along with its direct connection via daily flights to London, Toronto, Miami, New York and other major cities. So it’s not surprising Bermuda has become the world’s largest captive insurance domicile, one of the top three reinsurance centres, the leading market for insurance-linked securities, and a hub for trusts, hedge funds, family offices, and many other financial, technology, biomed and nearshore services.

Premium Partner: Feadship

Headquartered in the Netherlands, Feadship partners with owners across every continent. They often describe building a Feadship as one of the most thrilling – and fun – experiences of their lives. As the saying goes, ‘There are yachts and there are Feadships.’

There are several key reasons why Feadship has achieved this iconic status. Firstly, it builds purely custom superyachts. What does that actually mean? In a nutshell, every yacht it builds is totally unique. Clients arrive with a vision and Feadship starts with a blank sheet of paper to translate that vision into bespoke reality.

No two Feadships are the same. Each one reflects the style of its owner, how they like to relax and/or party, their idea of the ultimate travel experience, the places they would like to discover and so much more. Feadship combines all these parameters into one package and adapts the design process to every individual client. It’s what the shipbuilder calls ‘pure custom’ and it involves embarking on an unforgettable voyage through the entire process.

Clients building a yacht for the first time can rest assured that Feadship will leverage on the many hundreds of times it has guided people in making a lifelong ambition come true. There is an inherent quality to every Feadship that you can only really feel when you step aboard. This is the result of a relentless pursuit of perfection in every aspect of design, construction and engineering. Feadships are the product of perfect craftsmanship passed down the generations and are renowned for holding their value.

Together, this is what makes up the Feadship Experience… An investment in your pleasure that will live with you forever.

Trophy Partner: Puiforcat

Founded in 1820, the house of Puiforcat is a silversmith to the finest tables. Besides its virtuoso skill in silverwork, it enjoys a reputation for a consummate sense of design and elegance. This is due in part to the tremendous contributions made by Jean Puiforcat, a member of the fourth generation of the family, who headed up the company from the 1920s onwards. As a personification of the Art Déco movement and a member of the Union des Artistes Modernes, he elaborated a unique style characterised by architectural shapes, clean lines, meaningful simplicity and the absence of embellishment. His spare style provides the foundation for fine contemporary silverwork. Combining harmony and the pursuit of beauty in functional objects, it remains the guideline of the house to this day.

Since coming under the wing of the Hermès Group, Puiforcat has used its truly exceptional savoir-faire to both reproduce the finest pieces of its heritage and to imagine tomorrow’s classics alongside great contemporary designers. The Champagne beaker, a unique tasting vessel, the line of wine glasses Puiforcat Orfèvre-Sommelier developed with sommelier Enrico Bernardo, as well as Bureau d’Architecte, a line of desk accessories by French architect Joseph Dirand, all illustrate this approach.
