In an age of austerity, it’s often easy to blame the bankers for a nation’s woes. In today’s podcast, I am joined by Global Indian Brian Stuart-Young, CEO of Global Bank of Commerce, Antigua to discuss the ideas that are reshaping the nation of Antigua and Barbuda and the pivotal role that banking can play in supporting climate resilience and unlocking a new era of national prosperity.
We look at the role of FinTech and how a small nation economy that is becoming a hub of global Indian interest, could lead a renaissance of the Caribbean.

For over 15 years I have travelled across the globe deep diving into 60+ countries whilst exploring the kaleidoscope of our remarkable 50 shades of brown community.
Voyaging to the edges of the Amazon, facing Ebola in West Africa, being held hostage in Eastern Europe, tapping rubber in Malaysia, drinking chai with Heads of State and sharing laughter with local fishermen – I have been there, looking for the ideas that re-shape a nation.
