The Bank is wholly owned by the Government of St.Kitts and Nevis, but it is fully autonomous and operates independently with a Board of Directors, General Manager, and a team of staff members.

The Bank falls under the direct responsibility of the Minister of Finance, with the Bank's Manager having direct responsible for the day to day administration of the Bank. (see organizational chart).

The Development Bank of St. Kitts & Nevis has embarked on a new service specifically geared at helping small businesses within the Federation to develop and enhance their operations. The Business Support Unit is designed to react to the needs of small businesses and provide practical recommendations and solutions to common and chronic problems.

Over the years, the life expectancy of new businesses within the federation has being less than encouraging. Frequently, new businesses are formed and within a few months, and sometimes few years the business closes. The ripple effects of this situation is the loss of jobs and income for the owner and the employees, a change in the livelihood for the families and a loss or reduction of savings. Generally, the closure of any business puts a strain of the country both socially and economically. The Development Bank of St. Kitts & Nevis seeks to resolve some of the problems which causes business failures.
