The Cayman Islands sits at a unique convergence of a number of different and equally important attributes that make the jurisdiction so conducive to providing world class financial services and offering a top quality, dynamic and diverse tourism product.
It has a stable Government, is linked to Britain as a British Overseas Territory, has a legal framework based upon English Law, benefits from a tax neutral status and enjoys a low crime rate when compared to other developed countries.
The Cayman Islands are in close proximity to the United States, with just over an hour’s flying time to Miami. The Islands are well serviced by a number of international carriers as well as the local airline, Cayman Airways, with direct links to many North American hubs such Miami, Tampa, New York, Atlanta, Dallas and Chicago. Other well-serviced destinations include Kingston, Jamaica, Havana, Cuba, Panama and Honduras.
Situated in the Western Caribbean, the Cayman Islands enjoys almost year-round sunshine with cooling breezes that make a delightful environment in which to live. People from all over the world are attracted by the quality of life that is offered to both young professionals as well as those with families. Schools are of an excellent quality, and the dining, shopping, sporting and leisure facilities are plentiful and of an extremely high quality.
In addition to the above attributes, the Cayman Islands also offers world class diving, surrounded by intricate coral reef and exciting wrecks which have combined to make the jurisdiction a firm favourite with the international diving community. Kite-surfing is another extreme sport that has literally taken off in recent years and the Cayman Islands has quickly become a top destination for international kite-surfers.
