Our Story

Leno Corporate Services began when a veteran of the financial & Investment services industry dreamt of blending the genuine island charm the Bahamas is known for with the professional etiquette associated with our wealth management services (that has garnered respect for our region worldwide).

The idea and desire to establish a Bahamian Investment Boutique for all Bahamians to benefit from was born.

This Dream became a reality for the industry veteran when a casual conversation about his desire for a Bahamian Investment Boutique with his colleagues/ investment management team of eight (8) years became the topic of a lively discussion. The end result of that conversation left that investment team with three fundamental concepts.

“Bahamians Need This”. “Bahamians Deserve This”. “We Can Do This”.

In June 2010; LENO Corporate Services was formed and the Bahamas had its first Investment Boutique or Bahamians to accumulate and grow their wealth for all of their financial goals.
