The Cayman Islands' approach to the development of the financial services sector recognises that an appropriate regulatory and international cooperation environment is not an impediment to but rather a key driver of, commercial success. Our global financial services industry has significantly evolved during the more than 40 years it has been in existence. We have focused on two main objectives: building a world-class specialisation in institutional business and developing strong international cooperation arrangements to support our international financial services activity.
There are no confidentiality or 'secrecy' provisions that inhibit effective operation of these cooperation arrangements, and all relevant Cayman Islands authorities have comprehensive powers under their governing statutes to obtain and provide information. This site contains fact sheets that summarise these international cooperation arrangements in the areas of tax information, regulation and law enforcement.
