The ongoing investigation into the Stanford Group has highlighted the dependence which many Caribbean governments have on wealthy business people and business operations.

As customers of Stanford Bank queue to withdraw their deposits from around the world, could we see a collapse in some Caribbean economies, tourists industries and property markets?

There is also talk of changes to offshore banking regulations which could also have a major impact upon the Caribbean........

I think individuals such as Allen Stanford will come and go in many countries around the world and while their impact can be catastrophic on investors, future investors often have very short memories. Sometimes it is difficult to understand how any one individual such as Allen Stanford built up such a large presence in the region with his financial tentacles reaching far out.

It is now up to the government and local authorities to put in place safeguards to ensure the chances of this happening again are as small as possible. They will never disappear but there is certainly room for improvement.
