        Well Curtis is the one with the real finance industry background. It doesn’t necessarily translate into expertise but it is a step forward.

        Depends what political baggage he carries with him, and how that affects a pragmatic approach. And how he will be influenced by the base

        The rest, however, are clueless.

    Are Bermudians going to be able to invest in the Notes?

    Would be a great way for Bermudians to get involved and to earn some of the interst that is being paid to foreign institutions and investors!!
