Why Cayman Islands?

The Cayman Islands (“Cayman”) is well recognised as the pre-eminent offshore jurisdiction among international investment fund managers and investors.

International financial services make up 55% of the economy and 36% of employment. The regulation of the financial services industry is undertaken by the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA) which has a stricter regime than many other offshore jurisdictions. Although perceived as a ‘tax haven’, Cayman has made a number of steps in recent years to ensure adherence to recognised and relevant international standards and has achieved greater respect because of improved compliance.

The most common form of entity used for the establishment of funds in Cayman is the exempted company. This has also long been the vehicle of choice for listings on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

Reasons to set up an offshore entity in Cayman:

  • Comprehensive regulatory compliance
  • Minimal taxation and exchange control
  • Ease of operation, maintenance and control
