A Welcome Letter From the Bank's Founding Chairman Sir Tony Baldry



Dear Bank Customers and Our Worldwide Partners,

On behalf of our Board of Directors and employees, it is our distinct pleasure to welcome you to Nevis International Bank & Trust, the “Customer First Global Bank” (“NIB&T”). NIB&T is a leading banking institution fully licensed and regulated to offer commercial and investment banking services, investments, trust and escrow products, economic citizenship, as well as wealth management solutions to a large corporate and private banking clientele worldwide. 

At NIB&T, we pride ourselves on attentively listening to our clients. We are proud to highlight the Bank’s unique characteristics as a forward-looking global financial institution.

The ‘Customer First Global Bank,’ Exceptional Capital Strength 

Today’s global economies face many challenges. To assist our customers in benefiting from this complex landscape, NIB&T maintains an exceptionally strong Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1) capital ratio of nearly 100%, providing NIB&T’s customer deposits with unparalleled financial stability through the Bank’s “fortress” balance sheet, putting our customers’ interest first, making NIB&T one of the world’s safest depository institutions. NIB&T also delivers an effective and state-of-the-art global banking experience dedicated to premier customer service, vigorous regulatory compliance, customer privacy, as well as highly secure and intuitive 24/7 e-banking capabilities. 

Our Core Values, the Foundation of the Bank 

Unparalleled Safety of Customer Deposits. As a matter of bank policy, all of NIB&T’s customer deposits in U.S. dollars are placed in liquid U.S. Treasury bills which are the safest investments in the world. Accordingly, 100% of NIB&T’s customer deposits are backed dollar for dollar by the United States government. Customer deposits in other major currencies are invested in short term investment-grade bonds. 

A No-lending Policy, Zero Loan Defaults. Because NIB&T does not extend credit, it has zero loan defaults. This steadfast bank policy allows NIB&T to maintain exceedingly high capital ratios that outperform other major global banks. NIB&T stands ready to honor customer requests for liquidity at any time. 

Rigorous Regulatory Compliance, A Global Partnership with Kroll. As a fully regulated bank, NIB&T is subject to rigorous oversight and strictly adheres to best practices compliance standards. NIB&T’s global regulatory programs were jointly developed with Kroll, the largest risk management firm in the world whose services are relied upon by prominent banks and governments worldwide. Kroll and NIB&T have a formal and ongoing alliance to ensure that NIB&T’s daily practices remain in step with regulatory requirements. NIB&T also adopts Kroll’s well-regarded global due diligence abilities to augment the Bank’s already highly robust AML/CFT/KYC processes. The Bank’s independent auditor is Grant Thornton, one of the world’s largest independent public accounting firms.

Customer Privacy is Paramount. NIB&T has the highest regard for customer privacy and data protection, and believes clients’ data must be closely guarded with the same care we would extend to our own families. NIB&T utilizes highly secure government-grade facilities and protocols to power its 24/7 e-banking systems, enforcing strict protections for privacy while delivering a seamless service experience.

A One-stop Solution from Business Formation to Economic Citizenship. From providing banking support to helping clients register new businesses worldwide, NIB&T is a one-stop solution provider through our partners. In addition, the Bank is a St. Kitts and Nevis government licensed International Marketing Agent authorized to service the world’s oldest and most renowned Citizenship by Investment Program (CIP or CBI). When applicable, NIB&T’s worldwide customers have the option to obtain St. Kitts and Nevis citizenship while maintaining their current nationalities, benefitting from visa free travels to nearly 160 countries, including the entire European Union.

Your Prosperity, Our Commitment

We warmly welcome your visit to NIB&T’s global headquarters in Nevis, St. Kitts and Nevis, a prosperous British Commonwealth nation with a rich heritage.
