The Cayman Islands is a renowned offshore jurisdiction. Cayman is at the forefront of cross-border banking, financing, captives insurance and investment funds because of the structural and operational advantages it offers international corporations and individuals.
The Cayman insurance sector continues to thrive by way of the Insurance Law, 2010, which improved regulation of the insurance business. Globally, the Cayman Islands is the second largest domicile for captives and the pre-eminent jurisdiction for businesses in the healthcare space.
