Rebecca Peck has made the leap from articled clerk to become the 42nd Caymanian attorney-at-law admitted to the bar through Walkers. She attended Cayman Prep High School where she was selected to attend a global young leaders conference in 2008. She won a Walkers legal scholarship in 2012. Ms. Peck will join the Walkers investment funds group.
CIBC First Caribbean Bank last month hinted that it was set to introduce a new mobile banking app, and now has done so. The bank has created platforms for iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows devices. Users can pay select bills and make transfers between accounts, among other features.
Managing Director Mark St. Hill said the app is part of the bank’s ongoing work to increase customer convenience by using a personal device that goes almost everywhere. “That smartphone is really the access for a lot of our clients and it’s very important that we leverage that,” he said. “I went on, it took me less than two minutes to download the app from the store, I was connected through the internet and I love it.”
CIBC First Caribbean is now moving toward “chip and pin” technology for all of its credit card customers as new way to safeguard against fraud.
