The Cayman Islands is recognised as a major international financial centre with leadership in a number of areas. As the top international banking centre, the world’s leading domicile for alternative investment funds, the second largest captive insurance centre and a world leader in structured finance, the jurisdiction stands as the only offshore international financial centre to possess such breadth and depth in financial services.
For over 50 years, the Islands have maintained their position as a leading international financial centre through the enactment of numerous financial services legislation and proactive engagement and voluntary cooperation with international regulatory standards. They were one of the first non-OECD jurisdictions to adopt the principals of transparency and exchange of information, and the jurisdiction continues to be at the forefront of such initiatives
While achieving its commercial success, the Cayman Islands has maintained a high level of integrity. Private and institutional investors are attracted to the Cayman Islands because of its professional infrastructure, business friendly approach, flexibility, an English common law framework, stability, well regulated regime and tax neutrality.
