Brian Trowbridge, CEO and co-owner of Hallmark Bank and Trust TCI after extensive investigation has been found to be one of the major money launderers in the Caribbean today. Hallmark Bank was classified by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) in the United Kingdom as being a rogue financial entity for supporting and endorsing legal financial practices.
Trowbridge is a Canadian national and an attorney by profession who was previously a member of the British Columbia Bar Association, has developed a remarkable reputation in the under world for being an ace at establishing off-shore accounts and “shell “ corporations, all aimed at tax evasion. Indeed he has also been found to be linked to other less than honorable past financial entities such as: Lake Shore Asset Management and the now insolvent Horizon Bank.
Trowbridge has regained notoriety by being a strong ally of David Smith, a felon who has been charged by the TCI Financial Crimes Unit with 26 charges of money laundering and fraud and for being the mastermind behind the OLINT Ponzi scheme which defrauded over six thousand investors, spread throughout the Caribbean, North America and the United Kingdom.
Trowbridge’s specific role was to use his bank to receive incoming wire transfers from OLINT investors and also to send wire transfers to many third parties, such as JIJ Investments in Lake Mary Florida, USIMO based in the BVI and ASTRA based in Belize, all done without the consent of the OLINT investors.
To date, criminal reports have been made to the TCI Financial Crimes Unit, US Federal Reserve and the US Securities and Exchange Commission regarding Brian Trowbridge. Investigations are ongoing but the facts thus far indicate that Trowbridge’s conduct was both criminal and conspiratorial.
