Our Services

Our comprehensive private banking, wealth management and trust platform is highly customized and designed to cater to the unique needs of our clients. We offer the following bespoke services under one roof:


Our History

Deltec was established in 1946 in Brazil when Clarence J. Dauphinot, Jr. and associates, Earl Elrick and Angus Littlejohn, moved to Brazil to explore banking and direct investment opportunities. The first initial of each last name forms the DEL in Deltec.

Attracted to the safety and security offered by The Bahamas, the founders established a banking presence in Nassau in 1959.

Deltec’s shareholders, in the early days, included a number of prominent U.S. investment banks and European financial institutions, each of whom had a small shareholding to express their interest in the financing activities of the Deltec Group. Over the ensuing decades, Deltec forged its reputation as an innovator in structuring solutions and investment opportunities.

Deltec continues to engage shareholders, clients and friends to seek out and participate in the highest quality investment opportunities available.
