On the heels of the Institute for Private Investors Forum in Bermuda this past summer, Campden FB caught up with long-time member Edward Allanby. Having spent 20 years living in and welcoming family offices to Bermuda, Edward guides us through the many reasons why the North Atlantic island is the place to be.

There are myriad reasons to move to Bermuda - an archipelago of 181 islands totalling 21 square miles and surrounded by pink sand beaches and palm trees, the island is rich in culture, local and international cuisines and natural beauty, with a sub-tropical climate and temperatures that rarely drop below 55°F or exceed 90°F. The island offers one of the highest standards of living in the world, one of the highest per capita incomes in the world, a top-tier healthcare system and access to excellent schools.

With decades of environmentalist credentials under his belt, could King Charles III be a significant force in fighting climate change and inspiring ESG transformation?

For the past 50-plus years, the newly appointed King Charles III has spoken out about climate change, pollution and deforestation. From urging world leaders to adopt a “Warlike footing” against the climate crisis at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) to adopting organic farming on his estates and even adapting his vintage Aston Martin to run on surplus white wine and whey cheese, it’s little wonder his majesty is already being dubbed the “Climate King”.
