Resilience is the ability to work with adversity in such a way that one comes through it unharmed or even better for the experience. Resilience means facing life’s difficulties with courage and patience – refusing to give up. It is the quality of character that allows a person or group of people to rebound from misfortune, hardships and traumas.

Resilience is rooted in a tenacity of spirit – a determination to embrace all that makes life worth living even in the face of overwhelming odds. When we have a clear sense of identity and purpose, we are more resilient, because we can hold fast to our vision of a better future. – taken from


Coming off the matter of Clico and Baico’s inability to meet the commitments of investors/policyholders, a body has evolved over the past few months. The matter commenced from a letter written to the Nation Newspaper by Mrs. June Fowler on January 16th 2011. In direct relation to this an informal meeting was then initiated and hosted at The Divi Southwinds Hotel on February 11th 2011. This meeting witnessed some 100 person in attendance.

More recently a leadership team was appointed and consist of Mrs. june fowler (Chairman), Mr PEter Marshall, Mr. Jean Bell and Mr. Stanley Mac Donald.  Today the services of Attorney at Law Tariq Khan has been retained to representthe interest of the body.

The group which consists of CLICO and British American Investors is BIPA (Barbados Investors & Policy Holders).
