Here at Belize Bank International, culture is at the root of all that we do. By culture, we mean both our rich national heritage and our deep and unwavering commitment to our clients.
Belize is a veritable melting pot, uniting international languages, traditions and cultures. Although the only country in Central America where English is the official language, the variegated nature of Belizean society means that a multitude of languages besides English are spoken, these include among others: Spanish, Garifuna, Creole, Ketchi and even Maya. As a result, we truly uphold our role as an international citizen, represented by our commitment to the global financial industry and clientele.
With local insight and a global mindset, we uphold the tenets of discretion, simplicity, privacy that characterize our nation – and we aim to serve our clients above all else. This pledge stems from our values as a friendly and warm nation, both geographically, and personally, and which have resulted in deep and lasting partnerships and relationships globally.
At BBIL, we pride ourselves on our legacy as being part of a banking organization with over 100 years of experience. Our Latin partnerships and proximities to other Spanish nations add considerable diversity to who we are, as a people. What differentiates us as both a nation, and a banking system, is the local history and culture within Belize – who we are as a people, and the promises we make, and keep, to our trading partners.
And as a nation that cultivates a forward-thinking, technology-based culture, Belize is positioned firmly amongst global business leaders, possessing a window of investment opportunity with a competitive advantage. For these reasons and more, it has become a premier destination for banking and e-commerce business to the international investor and wider community.
This blog is a forum to reach out to our clients and partners alike – to provide insight, ideas, and commentary rooted in a heritage that is local, and a view that is inextricably and undoubtedly global.
