Scott said: “For nearly three years, I had the pleasure of serving as the Authority’s Deputy Chair, during which time I have had the benefit of working closely with Executive Chairman Mr. Jeremy Cox, as well as the other highly skilled and deeply experienced Directors on the BMA’s Board. I look forward to further fostering this collaboration with each of these Directors and the wider BMA team as we continue to fulfil our mandate as Bermuda’s independent regulator of all financial services.”
