On 1 November 2022, the MCB Group, being the largest financial institution in the Dutch Caribbean, successfully completed a corporate restructuring involving its operations in the jurisdictions of Curacao, St. Maarten, and the BES islands. The restructuring project comprised the transfer by The Windward Islands Bank of its Saba and Statia based banking operations to MCB Bonaire, as well as the cross-border merger of The Windward Islands Bank (St. Maarten) with and into Maduro & Curiel’s Bank (Curacao).
