The Butterfield Group:
Butterfield is Bermuda's first bank, originating from the trading firm of Nathaniel Butterfield, founded in Bermuda in 1784. Originally specialising in trading Bermuda cedar, wine and dry goods, the business of the firm grew and became more sophisticated under the direction of the founder’s son, Nathaniel T. Butterfield. Eventually, the company began establishing current accounts for its merchant clientele, and by the early 1800s, financial transactions came to dominate the daily business of the company.
In 1858, the firm was established as a private bank in Bermuda – The Bank of N.T. Butterfield. It was later incorporated under a special act of the local Parliament in 1904.
Today, Butterfield provides a range of banking, wealth management and trust services to clients from offices in The Bahamas, Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Jersey, Singapore, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
Butterfield is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange (symbol: NTB) and the Bermuda Stock Exchange (symbol: NTB.BH).
