The warm and welcome ethos of Cayman, dubbed “Caymankind”, is at the centre of its recognition as a major international finance centre. Cayman is the perfect cocktail of business-friendly simplicity and industry expertise within a well-regulated regime.
As a tax neutral jurisdiction classified as a British overseas territory, Cayman benefits from a political and parliamentary relationship with the UK, while operating under the Caribbean court system. This structure allows for legislative flexibility, which has seen the development of a practical and robust trust law. Cayman has demonstrated strong consistency in its court rulings, offering assurances to clients that their expectations for the management of their wealth will be diligently met.
As a completely independent service provider, we have the freedom to explore all avenues which will expand the depth and breadth of our client service offering. In Cayman, we recognised an opportunity to expand our toolbox for our clients by providing access to a jurisdiction with a great infrastructure, highly qualified staff and advisers and a tried and tested legislative system.
We have extensive experience of establishing and administering Cayman structures, including compliance with Cayman law relating to trusts and companies. Our commitment to client service and taking all necessary steps to fulfil our clients’ needs saw us obtain a blessing from the Grand Cayman Court for a momentous decision for the distribution of high-value and complex trust assets in accordance with Shari’a Law.
Cayman is continually evolving, including developing innovative legislation and regulation in respect to cryptocurrency, which is becoming increasing important to our clients.
Our Cayman office compliments our bespoke family office services, particularly for international families who require multi-jurisdictional structures, for example to facilitate the separation of personal and business assets. The addition of Cayman to our jurisdictional offering is particularly beneficial to the Asian, Latin American and Middle Eastern markets.
