It is a noted offshore jurisdiction for investment funds, structured finance and private equity transactions and is the second largest captive domicile in the world with more than 700 captives. The jurisdiction is also recognised in providing trusts, company and partnership formation and vessel and aircraft registry services.

In addition, Cayman-incorporated companies are listed on major stock exchanges around the world including the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, London Stock Exchange, NYSE, NASDAQ, and Singapore Exchange. There is also a lot of exciting new growth in other locations, such as the Taiwan Stock Exchange.

Closer to home, Cayman also operates its own highly successful stock exchange and continues to evolve its business offering, most recently by introducing limited liability companies as a structuring option.
