HAMILTON, BERMUDA – The Bermuda Monetary Authority (Authority or BMA) announced today the commendation of its Executive Chair Jeremy Cox. Mr. Cox is being awarded a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) as part of the 2020 Queen’s Birthday Honours.
The Queen’s Birthday Honours are normally held during the month of June in celebration of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s official birthday celebrations. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the release of the Birthday Honours was postponed until 10 October.
A CBE is one of the ranks in the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. This British order of chivalry, initially created by King George V to reward the thousands who had made non-combatant-related contributions to the British Empire in World War I, recognises individuals who have made outstanding contributions in their field or community.
