Anthony R. Ferguson is President and Founder of leading asset management firm Colina Financial Advisors Ltd. (CFAL); Executive Vice Chairman of Ansbacher (Bahamas) Limited, one of the oldest and most respected private banks and trust companies in The Bahamas; and a former Publisher/President of The Nassau Guardian (1844) Limited, The Bahamas’ oldest newspaper.
With more than 25 years of experience in the investment industry, Mr. Ferguson is a Registered Investment Advisor and Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) charter holder.
In 2002, he was a member of a consortium of professionals who purchased majority ownership in The Nassau Guardian, a move that made the newspaper a Bahamian-owned entity for the first time in 30 years. In 2007, Mr. Ferguson, then a director of the company, became its Publisher/President.
Under Mr. Ferguson’s watch, The Nassau Guardian became a multi-media operation, branching into radio through STAR 106.5FM, and developing a partnership with cable television provider Cable Bahamas for the production of a nightly television newscast, NB-12. Guardian Radio 96.9 FM was launched in 2012, becoming the first all-talk radio station in the country. These products, along with The Freeport News and Print Masters, make The Guardian group the most dynamic media organization in The Bahamas.
Mr. Ferguson is a Director of Colina Holdings Bahamas Limited; Colina General Insurance Agents & Brokers Limited; and AF Holdings Ltd. He formerly served on the boards of The Airport Authority of The Bahamas; The Nassau Airport Development Company; and The National Insurance Board of The Bahamas. He is a former Deputy Chairman of the Bahamas Financial Services Board.
