As the fifth-largest banking centre in the world, the Cayman Islands remains one of the world’s leading international financial centres. This highly regulated and politically stable jurisdiction offers a wide array of services including mutual funds, company management, structured financing, shipping registration, insurance, and securities listings on the stock exchange. Since the introduction of the Mutual Funds Law in 1993, which has been copied by jurisdictions around the world, the Cayman Islands have grown to be the world’s leading offshore investment funds jurisdiction.
Harneys’ Cayman Islands office provides a full range of commercial legal services in the broad areas of investment funds, private equity, corporate and M&A, finance and banking, trusts and private wealth, and litigation and insolvency. We also provide a full range of corporate and fiduciary services including incorporation, registered agent services, corporate secretary, compliance consultancy and registration and transfer agency.
While our Cayman office is the cornerstone of the practice, we also have partner-led Cayman teams in our London, Hong Kong, Singapore and Montevideo offices. In 2014 our global Cayman coverage expanded to North America with a new presence in Vancouver, Canada, allowing clients across the globe to easily access our results-driven approach in regards to Cayman law.
