• Our History

    Our heritage is helping businesses grow.

Exceptional client service, wherever you are in the world.

A global beginning

BDO was founded in 1963 with five original member firms in the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, the US and Canada. These firms formed the Binder Seidman International Group. In 1973, the British, German and Dutch member firms adopted a common name whose acronym has endured for the entire global network. That name was Binder Hamlyn (UK) Dijker & Co (Holland) Otte & Co (Germany).

What does 'BDO' stand for?  Literally, BDO stands for Binder Dijker Otte.

BDO Eastern Caribbean's origin

BDO Eastern Caribbean was first BDO St. Lucia started by Brenda Duncan in October of 2009 and was established in March 2017 after a merger with KPMG Eastern Caribbean. Our expansive clientele includes local and multinational corporations of varying sizes and complexity along with several international mutual funds.

Today, BDO’s entrepreneurial spirit lives on, and the firm continues its history of growth as it expands across the country and the wider Caribbean. Yet, no matter how large we become, we continue to remain united under a common purpose: helping people thrive, every day.
