Welcome to First Citizens

Dear Valued Customer,

It is my great pleasure as the Acting CEO of Butterfield Bank (Barbados) to announce that the agreement for the acquisition of the Butterfield Bank (Barbados) Limited by First Citizens has been approved by regulators in both Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago.

I am therefore delighted to welcome you to the First Citizens family!

While it has been three months since First Citizens first signaled its intention to acquire Butterfield Bank (Barbados), the intervening period was most challenging for everyone, including you our most valued customers. That interim period has now come to an end and Butterfield Bank (Barbados) is now legally First Citizens (Barbados).

Several weeks ago, Managing Director of Butterfield (Barbados), Lloyd Wiggan advised that he was at a point in his career where he was eligible to retire. While we would have liked for Mr. Wiggan to stay on with us, he has decided that he wishes to proceed on retirement. It really is bitter-sweet news for us, as Lloyd Wiggan was the driving force behind the solid financial platform built by Butterfield (Barbados). I want to publicly thank him for his dynamic and robust leadership, and wish him well as he starts the next chapter of his life.

We also recognise that this solid financial platform built by Butterfield Bank (Barbados) was one of the attributes which attracted the First Citizens Group to this vibrant banking institution.

We deeply value and thank you for your loyalty to Butterfield over the years and know that you will continue to support us as First Citizens (Barbados). As a First Citizens (Barbados) customer you will benefit from a wide range of competitive product offerings in personal or business banking, lifestyle banking and Investments making it possible for us to address your every financing and Investment need.

We are very excited about the prospects ahead for us as we blend the considerable talents and technology of this incredible group of people with unmatched experience. Ultimately, our success comes from helping you succeed. We take pride in what we do and we look forward to earning your loyalty and support as our newest First Citizens (Barbados) Customers.

Once again, a heartfelt welcome to the First Citizens Family.

Glyne Harrison
CEO (Ag)
